Words of Morning

Words of morning
come like light
on the water
while day awakens.
No longer in shadow
seeking and furtive,
but open as the sky
and color green,
reaching in,
flowing out,
tender as the tide
to meet you.

    It seems that words of morning have been partially obscured by words of mourning of late across the world for many. Good to awaken to the light upon the water. Thanks Don.
