Thursday Poem - How Sweet It Is

at dawn, a frail moon waning in the high
still light of morning blesses this perfect
summer day, one that will never come again
in all its sweetness and its verdant spice,

and slow walkers in the early fog, we go paw 
and paw through fragrant summer yieldings
of swaying purple clover and rhyming crickets,
of humming bees and dancing leaves

while all around us, unseen but deeply felt 
and loved, this world is breathing in and 
out, our three voices rising and falling as one
into seamless light and tune and time.

how sweet this world, these fleeting 
earthly days, how very very sweet...

I agree, it is a perfect way to begin my day with poem, photo and inspiration from guests to your page.
