Poem: Rising Upward

Updated on March 13, 2017

Tim Mitchell has been writing poetry since high school. He enjoys exploring them, the many forms, and writing them


Rising Upward

Slowly announcing the break of dawn,

Mr. Sunshine stretches his wide arms,

Offering a morning hug he says “Hello!”,

Soon, he shares today is a new adventure.

Eagerly with immense joy earthly angels,

Fly here and there upon wings of feathers,

Their songs paint the skies with their delight,

A brisk cool breeze flutters upon landscape.

“Yawn-stretch-yawn” greets the arrived day,

Coffee brews percolating its very own tune,

Its song of gladness offers soon another smile,

Mystery points to expectations of new discovery.

Silent whispers dance alongside today’s wonder,

Bold, brave, courageous the explorer of today,

Looks at the horizon knowing the new destination,

Sitting with cup of coffee glee is that eternal moment.

      I used to feel this way. Waking up in a dreamy state, surrounded by nature's sights and sounds, with the moment sealed in a very human way-by having a beautiful cup of coffee:) Simply divine!

      Beautiful morning description with these poetic lines.

      I used to enjoy these mornings with great delight. But, now, at my present locality, it is all around high apartments and I miss the morning bliss. Our civilization is depriving us all these natural enjoyments.
