Poem: 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.
