our sun rising through cotton candy sky
dew drops glistening along blades of grass
birds announcing the arrival of a new day
- Oh the beauty of an earthen morn!
white puffs peppering the cerulean sky
sunflowers heads seeking the light
bees dancing their way from bloom to bloom
- Oh the beauty of an earthen noon!
sunset masterpiece fading to periwinkle
wind whispering a lullaby
rabbits grabbing grass mouthful by mouthful
-Oh the beauty of an earthen twilight!
blackness glittering with infinite stars
fireflies decorating with yellow bursts of light
rest filling the moments with silence
-Oh, the beauty of an earthen night!
Filling my rising to my rest with your beauty,
thank you Earth.
This poem was written to a prompt from Solace and Connection by Leigh Anne Eck, http://adayinthelifeof19b.blogspot.com/2023/04/solace-connection-4.html to write a poem about the beauty of the earth. I tried to capture the small bits of beauty that fill my days. I am so grateful that moments of beauty exist all day long.
