Occanum, Susquehanna .(.morning with a hint of noon)






  As
the morning
fog
 sweeps
 down
from the hills
all
of green
in
 mid may
 splendor

 the light rain
bringing
out
 the
newts
and
salamanders
while
the
red ants
build
 their
mighty cities
amid
the
mandrake
and lady-slippers
 dancing




in
the
first
morning
 breezes
Upturned
 maple leaves
tell of storm
soon
arriving
with time
 to get in the laundry

Fresh bread cooling
and
a rhubarb pie
fishing
and feeding mosquitoes
put off for a less lightning prone afternoon




clouds
 float
 in whip-cream nimbleness
 reflected
in
 the
Occonum
where
it joins
 the
Susquehanna


as the first bees fly
 over a sleeping fawn
the last mists fade
at the blossoming sun
beaver
slaps tail
 dives
past turtle
swimming
crow
talking
 above

Wow, such a nice mental image displayed here. Like we get to see the awakening from your senses perspective. Just perfect in the imagery and the flow, just delightful in the adjectives you used to describe the natures morning. I loved it. Really a tear to my eye i thought it so beautiful. (and that dont happen often with poems). Congratulations on a very well written, poetic, beautiful creation. 5 stars......write on............Tempestlady

Hi. I liked that. It's a relief to read a poem that doesn't sound like a suicide note. There's so much angst I was beginning to wonder if this was the right site. Keep writing please. X

Poetry is what is lost in translation.
