Dawn Beautiful

Dawn beautiful

time-still kingdom of early rising birds

periwinkle skies

honey colored distant clouds drifting north

sun’s vapors greeting the cold start

as tomorrow meets today.


The first tram crests the hill

clatters through sleeping streets.

Sun must rise to burn off morning dew.

  1. SO pretty. Thank you. Best poetry I’ve read in some time. Love the tableau, love the sound of the words in my mind’s ear.

    PS ~ “tableau” is a word I’ve stolen from John Sterling, the voice of the NY Yankees. I’m not smart enough to claim it as my own… but it is a perfect word.
