Misty Morning


Pin drop silence in the early morning
Dew drops form on the window sill
Faded lights beam from beyond the mist
Like a curtain these mists will slide and fade
Once the rays of the sun arise to start a new way
To begin another day in another millennium
No more mists will be seen from yesterday
In this brand new day only a new way
A new song from early birds

The breath of God must be like this
Even the first human being must have felt the same
To receive the first breathe in the beginning of a new day
What a beginning to see these mists in the morning
And hear brand new sounds from crickets and beetles
From an orchestra of winged creatures
Beethoven would surely smile
To welcome the misty morning
That we will surely see today

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem from North Sinai in the Spring of 2014 while observing the way of nature and life in this remote part of the world. Its intrinsic beauty made me look for ways to describe the beauty of this place, especially the everyday events such as misty mornings, the morning orchestra of birds in a place where life is hard. Surely with Gods grace such beauty can be found in this place and dedicate this poem to the people that live here everyday of their lives.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
