Good morning from the lakeside deck ~

emerging sun lights up the sky

colors are a’changing

on its way up to shine

streaming across the woodlands

rising before it’s really known

moving from blues to golds

Oh~ the glory shines

as some traveler

stopping by

but not yet really staying

morning light moves downward into the hallows

filling the mighty earth’s shadowy ground

such a soft gentle light

and the air

is summertime warm

sometimes I find

it’s hope talking to me

morning rising

Good morning from the lakeside deck ~

TREE STAND

I sit high in a tree stand

if I was a child again

I would climb these old tree limbs

and never tire of being here

now I am old

as I sit here on my redwood deck

up high in the trees ~ so high

I can touch the sky

Out of the northern sky

Rises this morning’s second sunrise

Over the Ozarks’ Bear Hollow Ridge

What magic is this?

Another summer solstice is coming ~
