Cool night’s condensation along the river’s breath, winding
Through the valley bottom filling up with a morning blanket …
A fresh, soft ceiling concealing the habitats below
Of people rousing from beds, washing, brushing,
Scurrying through misty doorways, unclouded aims.
No time to enjoy Earth’s morning contemplation
As the sun flushes a rosy warmth beyond the clouds
To light blue tinted skies and horizon of grey mountains,
To lift the blanket higher and lighter, with dampness
Lingering moisture for tall trees and grasses from the river below.
Inhabitants … ride to the top to greet Earth’s morning benediction,
Breath deeply the calmness, the beauty, the connection …
Under the blanket we are family cared for by maternal nature,
Every morning, life-giving and nurturing, say thank you today.
