My Early Morning Photo with Blanket

Ode to Earth Waking Up with a Blanket with Thanks

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 …

Every morning, life-giving and nurturing, say thank you today.
