Carpe Diem # 955 Morning

after midnight
the big dipper empties
over the maple




at two a.m.
the evening star balances
on the neighbors roof




around five
one bright star high overhead
and tree shadows




before dawn
the clouds fill with light
start of perfect day



air fills with birdsong
amber orb ablaze



early morning
the smell of fresh cut grass
and a rooster’s crow

tulip bows
to the sun
