Pick of the Clicks – Moments of the Morning

Early morning is my favorite time of day. In watching the sky change color and the world come to life after the dark of night surrenders to the light of day, I find hope and knowledge. Every sunrise and event of the morning offer lessons in life and different perspectives to reflect upon. The following poem was inspired by the sights, sounds, and changes in nature I observed this morning.

Moments of the Morning

Sun breaking the plane of the horizon line
With orange rays in the eastern sky,
Rising in stoic beauty and grace
Reaching out to the soul to embrace
The moments of the morning
Stretching out before thee.

Clouds Reflecting Sunlight Lisa A. Wisniewski

Clouds Reflecting Sunlight

Clouds in the distance reflecting the light
Spreading peace within the mind
Of the soul watching time pass
As the dew rolls from the blades of grass
From the warmth of the sun’s light
Now higher up in the sky
As the moments of the morning
Stretch out before thee.

Robin in Tree

Bird in a tree singing its song of praise
Reflecting the beauty in God’s grace
Spreading out in the minutes
To be found within
The moments of the morning
Stretching out before thee.

Wild Flower in Sunlight Lisa A. Wisniewski

Wild Flower in Sunlight

Wild flower in the sun soaking up the rays
Allowing its petals to open at the start of the day
Welcoming the soul to life
With minutes to hold in time
And renew the spirit within
Making its way through the journey given
In the moments of the morning
Stretching out before thee.

Blue Sky with White Clouds Lisa A. Wisniewski

Blue Sky with White Clouds

Blue in the sky
Reaching far and wide
With puffy clouds
Above the ground
Offering dreamy thoughts to the mind
Of the body caught up in life
As the moments of the morning
Stretch out before thee.

Dew on Grass Lisa A. Wisniewski

Dew on Grass

Reflecting upon the sights and the sounds,
The soul finds God’s presence all around,
Offering hope and peace
For the unknown as it comes to be
Part of the moments of the morning
Stretching out before thee.
