The promise of a new day

The promise of a new day


I often look up to an ever- changing sky


The glint of a waning Sun, capturing my camera’s eye


The wonder of flying Geese noisily pass


Shadows of surrounding mountains on me, they do cast


The crackling of wet grass under foot frozen quick


As good dog Otis searches for that perfect stick


The silence of workday traffic fading away


As I ponder the promise of a coming new day

      Thank you all. A bit of a departure for this political commentator. Fun!
