The blue sky is background to a rising red sun
Soft fluffy clouds drift on by
The start of a day that has just begun
Birds are chirping close by
Cool water caressing the edge of the land
Ducks taking care of their young
Bare feet now covered by cooling damp sand
Willow leaves gracefully hung
Such is the morning a joy to partake
The wind gently blowing around
A warm summer morning down by the lake
A peace on earth can be found
Words are penned in thoughtful rhyme
Linger on through the passage of time
Poetic pictures that all can see
Written in ink for you and me
I would like to nominate: Californian Ink in Motion – Clinging White Sand – California Ink in Motion
Wonderful poem..and thank you for the nomination…*blushing*

I am always enthralled by poetry of moment. By that I mean a poem that captures an instant, a photograph of life. It is amazing that we as humans can smith words into such an image.
Thank you for commenting Aaron, I understand what you mean. To capture a moment in a verbal image just goes to prove the power of the written word 🙂
Charming! I could almost feel the soft warm rays of the sun and the gentle breeze from your words alone.
Thank you Renee for your nice comment and for visiting 🙂

This was really lovely. After reading so much poetry about love or heartbreak or darker emotions (this includes my own poetry, most definitely), this poem was refreshing. A message of tranquility, peace and positive feelings.
Thank you for your comment Fountain and for visiting 🙂 I like try and keep my writing light and sometimes funny too, but I do have my dark moments. 🙂
