Traveler On the Backroads

  • “The First New Day”

AFTER A WEEK OF BITTER COLD WEATHER and being locked out of my FB page for a week (after being hacked and removed as Admin temporarily), I’m in the mood for some good weather and comforting things …

🌺🌸💓.Oh what a beautiful day …

morning comes quietly at first

nothing more than a whisper.

a dream.

the slightest noise and she might vanish.

but still she breaks the horizon

cascading over hills and across

a golden sea of wheat.

at first only a bird or two

like an orchestra tuning.

and up above a branch rustles

as a gentle breeze

brushes through the leaves.
and therein the early morning

dawn just as it did on that

very first day so long ago.

first one

then two

then a third

echoes in reply

until the air is filled with song.

ushering in the light

as the darkness fades away.

and as if a dam broke

light crashes splashes over hills

and valleys.

a tide of golden warmth

shimmering through branches

and leaves.glistening off the dew.

clinging to the dawn

of this bright new day.

as if it were the first.

the very first brand new day .

.. 🌺🌸💓.~ poem “The First New Day” by Michael Traveler, author/poet.

I am interested in writing short stories for my pleasure and my family's but although I have published four family books I will not go down that path again but still want what I write out there so I will see how this goes
