I love the simplicity

Soft glow of light
in the east
as day breaks

I see it through
the naked limbs
of a sycamore

light cloud cover
tinged
with pink

barely a breath
of wind
barely a sound

but for the chatter
of birds
the early risers

I love the simplicity
the blessing
of what it is

to be alive
