Autumn Morn

I woke this morning

hearing the hum of the grain dryer
a sign it must be Autumn

in the sky a beautiful star
bright on this early Autumn morn
without my glasses it looks as if it were made up of four
 – maybe five stars
all in a cluster shining bright
twinkling with all it’s energy until the
 sun brightens the sky
and my morning star fades
sleeps until next I see it smile at me

I woke up this morning
feeling the cool crisp Autumn air
coming through my window
embracing me with a morning chill

a chill not offensive to me
just letting me know misery
of hot humid summer air has been put to sleep
Now ready for the illustration of this season
color on trees
beauty from nature
truly a masterpiece from God

I woke up this morning
in a soft easy way
the world is alive around me

I am glad I woke up this morning
