Hum

Standard

the stream hums
in tandem with whispering
pine trees

Magic

Standard

morning brings magic

to wooded paths

and open sidewalks

silence slowly fades

to steaming coffee cups

and chatty birds

dawn’s white sky

trickles through leaves

reflects on windows

until the blue of day

chases the clouds

and daily joggers

There in plain sight

a waking sun

sprinkles the shadows

with glittering light

Inviting a pause

to seize the magic

of a new day
