Tranquility

Quiet
Tranquil
Dawn
First birds
Singing
Colourful
Sweet songs

Hazy violet
Starry sky
Bringing in
The morn

Listening to
The radio
Wakeful
Words
& tunings
Before the
Start
Of bustling

Anticipating
What’s ahead
Preparing
For what’s
To unfold

Decisions
For the future
Big ones
& small ones

Getting beyond
Obstacles
Creating newness
One day at
A time

For the Ragtag Daily Prompt ‘tranquil’


Authour’s note: poem 18/30 for a month of poetry 2021. A reflection on the dawn & the complex feelings of looking towards the day, also as a metaphor for the future.
