Poetry Prompt #8 (WDBWP) – Morning

As  first light breaks
Over the mountains
I hear the birds sing
In the silence of dawn

The dew on the grass lays
Like crystal droplets of light
But my love sleeps on …
Whilst I walk in the world

The lake is so placid,
The wind softly whispers,
A new day has come …
Yet so few will see it.

I walk in the birdsong
On an empty path at dawn
No one but me and them
In this golden hour of calm.

I wrote this for WDBWP’s Poetry Prompt # 8 hosted by Oloriel…sorry I’m late! And I’m also sorry it’s not a true ode…odes always defeat me!

  2. No worries about being late, Bastet, I just posted the results due to having an all day shenenigence fest with my son 🙂
    The poem is enchanting, I especially liked this part:
    “The dew on the grass lays
    Like crystal droplets of light
    But my love sleeps on …
    Whilst I walk in the world”
