The First Gleam of Day

“Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky.” -Khalil Gibran
pretty tree
To keep with the nature themed poems I’ve been posting recently, here’s another along with a picture I took last summer!

The young birch casts its shadow
across a lightly trodden path
under the first gleam of day
from the slowly rising sun

This magnificence, you see,
exists every day at dawn
how we would marvel if we always saw
what sleep often subdues
