Wake up call

Wake up call

A plush navy-blue billowing sky
           as the sun set yesterday
and I wonder what
           that portends
Today a dawn chorus
           worthy of spring 
life on the cusp
           renewal and growth
every reason to feel
           relaxed and optimistic
about the days to come :
           through the banks
of drifting cloud
           there is light
coming from the east
           I hear pigeons courting
nearby and see other birds
           hastening to their action
stations and a lone jet
           has bisected the sky
with a thin white line
           travellers to and fro
It’s one of those days
           when you just know
that nothing can go wrong
           that a kiss could not put right
