For the Shadows and Light poetry contest, free verse.
|I amble along as the morning star
Unfurls an aura of pale, amber light.
Floating in the lake of dim blue sky the
Bits of tiny clouds waft through the mellow
Beams of the partial moon unwilling to
Shed it's limelight and preens herself in
The mirror of the pallid, azure sky.
The sun rises ushering in a new
Day, to mark in the daily calender
Of my life, a start to begin afresh.
Bougainvilleas and chrysanthemums
Adorning my garden with their splendid
Array, an exquisite beauy to rollick
With all my spirits and savor fully.
A cool zephyr embraces my body,
Appeasing me with a serene repose.
A couple of pigeons playfully
Peck at each others' beaks, toying in a
Sprightly manner that fills me with a feel
So invigorating, enlivening.
A pair of martins nestle on the roof.
I watch the cerulean sky above,
The flight of the birds in a specific
Pattern with their wings fluttering as if
To wish me a ' Good Morning' making
Me feel revivified with a freshness.
The hues of the dawn shades the canvas of
The sky with pastels of vibrant colors.
Nature's portrait presents a divine charm,
An exquisite pulchritude to make all
The artists zealous to bring forward their
Sheets, to paint using their color palette.
I drink in the fresh air and respire with
A vigor, energizing me again.
Agile and nimble as a lamb I frisk
About in my garden full of flowers
Of myriad, vivid colored petals
That only presents a flawless beauty.
