Early Morning Silence

Early Morning Silence prose poem

Uploaded by Marie

A car zipped through the early morning silence
bursting in sound the stillness of sunrise
Sol emerged in golden rays
cast upon the new day
A robin hopped as though dancing in rhythm
to ‘The Dawn Chorus’
who woke the sleeping flowers from slumber
wet with morning dew
Busy bees sipped nectar
smacking their lips
while butterflies flitted by stopping once in a while
to whisper to the early morning breeze
as they perched on a nearby wall
fragrant from the roses which tumbled over
Clang! Clang! The milkman popped full bottles
on cement door steps
and whistled a merry tune
as he went on his way
Just another day!
Mother Nature fully alive…
