On a Dawn Like Today



It is on a dawn such as this that I wish

   I could paint, not with words but with

   bold brushstrokes of cherried-violet along

   the steely underside of a stormcloud puffed

   with the promise of rain later today 

How to capture on canvas the first golden

   streams of sunrise issued through bough of

   juniper laden with pewter-blue berries or the

   way the rays set fire the stippled surface of

   the pond as red-breasted robins vie for the

   best stone on which to set about their

   morning ablutions

Bravo! Well said.

Pewter is a great color for berries. ~S~
