Morning Vignette



An Autumn morning;
in the sky, promise of sunshine
adds radiance to the misty landscape.
Dew glistens on grass.
Crystal beads of water
dangle from points of leaves,
or nestle roundly on each surface,
shimmering.
The Earth is gathering strength
back into itself
as an insurance against Winter.
It knows the Spring will need
these hidden resources
if it is to blossom again next year.

what a beautiful description of the morning...bringing me picturesquely all the way through the seasons!

we don't have the four seasons in these islands so, shall i join you in spirit? oh by the way, i'm a struggling poet, and poetry has been a companion in life...it has its own sense of healing... thanks very much,jinsky!

Just my same thoughts Hilary...your beautiful thoughts Jinksy affect many the same way...I'm off to enjoy nature this cool early morning, but not before copying your lovely thoughts to read again!

Smiles,
Wanda

Hello Jinksy,

A lovely interpretation of the morning dew that will be more in evidence from now on. If we could just keep the sunshine!

Yes Jinksy - it is that time of year again - still - what goes around, comes around. Soon be Christmas!

Thanks Jinksy, for your apt thoughts. You express them beautifully. I too am a poet but have not been writing for a while. You have inspired me to look at some of my own poems about autumn - in my case, I call one of them Harvest Gleanings. This because of my Canadian Prairie farm background. I think I am inspired - I am going to start in again. I will post the Harvest Gleanings on my blog as soon as I sign off... Shirley

Dear Heart! This poem is just what I needed to cheer me up! I shall look at the seemingly never-ending rain with new eyes today.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
