Traveler On the Backroads

· this time

this time shared with You

before the world opens her eyes

when the pre-dawn light is still

and my soul is swimming in the magic

that lingers as the earth sigh

sits first sigh and slowly opens her eyes

bringing warmth and beauty

as she chases away the night

the silence and mystery of the dark


and the cascade of colors

golds and pinks and blues

shimmering through

the hovering mist

and i feel your kiss

upon my cheek

as the morning light

greets me


where i sit with

You in the morning mist

welcoming the new day 🍁🍂💓
