Dawn's Rose

 

I greeted you  
this morning  
at the pivotal part  
of day.  

Still gray out  
dew in the air  
I walked your path.  
Emerging from  
brown twigs  
and sleepy greens  
you secretly  
showed your face,  
unaccustomed  
to your own  
newness and beauty.  

And there
in the silence  
that only a
crow's caw sliced  

I know  
you greeted me.

Moved and touched by this post. In your words, I heard the flowers greeting me and felt all of nature welcoming me.
