The Virgin Morning

Updated on September 13, 2012

The Virgin Morning

Am I the first

to visit this day

I see no one

I stand here

a shadow in a

picture of perfection

lovely

in it’s stillness

no breeze

no movement

no human sound

an intruder

in this

peace and tranquillity

this world

is it my world?

motionless

afraid to

desecrate

it’s beauty

untainted

I withdraw

I won’t be the first



Source

In Time, a Haiku



Perfect creation

The trap set

Waiting

      Hi Jackie, I agree - I spend hours looking at a web trying to think of some way to capture their beauty, hopefully one day I will come up with a great idea, I will let you know when I do!!!

      Many thanks for visiting, have a wonderful day, best wishes Lesley

      Lovely poem and love the web. It is so hard to capture the real beauty of those isn't it? I found a huge one this summer with sun reflecting on it but the pictures did no do it justice.

      Beautiful piece of writing.Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness.I voted up.

      Hello MM,

      Very nice poem (and comments too). I was thinking the same thing that Hyphen said - kind of like not disturbing beautiful snow that has fallen overnight. Have a great weekend.

      Gail Sobotkin 5 years ago from South Carolina

      I loved this as it really drew me into the mood of seeing the earth awaken in the early morning light. One does get the feeling everything is new and fresh as in reality it is. Nothing is ever exactly the same or exactly what it looks like with Mother Nature and you captured that in your poem and Haiku. Also, the spider web photo is awesome.

      Voted up except for funny.

      Movie Master: What a lilting, lovely, lucid tribute to the way in which the world and life begins afresh with each new day! The early morning light and silence can be felt through every word, image and beat.

      And what a decisive depiction of the busy, goal-directed and results-oriented spiders of the world!

      Thank you for sharing your poetically creative genius along with your texture-rich b&w photo, voted up, etc.,

      Votes up MM. Great poems. This style is really catching on, your Haiku poem. Brilliant:) I hope all is well my dear. It is cold, so I am enjoying the gray clouds. They bring a sense of comfort to me. In Arizona, they were always blue skies, probably 340 days out of 365. To me, this is a peaceful poem, silence and still. A time that we all need at some point. Best wishes.

      Oh, wow Movie Master, I agree with Vinaya, 'In Time' is awesome. Simplicity at its very best. I also love the feeling you evoke whereby we the reader simply want to tip toe away with you, from the newness and perfection of the virgin morning and leave it untainted. Lovely words, lovely image, lovely poet. Votes from me!
