first thing

dawn songs
strike and treat
your cares away,
first thoughts
stifled on a chirping scale
of octave-scent oxygen
wept through windows
worldwide,
as if to say
don't start your day
just listen
still and lay.

  1. Lovely. This is often the way I begin my day: just listen still and lay. It is a lovely cocooned feeling - though, occasionally, I find I - inexplicably - feel a little sad.

  2. Yes...you put it simply and perfectly. Just the right kind of poem to capture the moment and the feeling of it.

  5. Funny....how another's perspective can lend color to a moment. My insomniac 3am mornings lying in the stillness of the night listening to another breathe. I have, at times, had hours of this.....when thought and dreams and regret mingle into purpose. This was lovely, my friend.
