FILLING THE MORNING WITH WONDER - A HAIKU STRING
how they twitter
these birds of the morning -
breath in breath out

breath in breath out
the newness of today
tis sweet repast

tis sweet repast
dew drops frost green leaves -
ah sun rising

ah sun rising
shards of light image the walls
azure-filled window

filling the morning with wonder/watergrass flower suckles a bee
