New day,new beginning

The Dawn of a New Day.

A new day,
a new beginning,
the greyness
of the night
slowly dissipating.

Patch of blue sky showing,
trees motionless,
lake calm
not a ripple,
no sounds
to break the silence.

A magnificent white horse
standing tall
among the rocks,
viewing his territory,
embracing it all.

In the cool of the morning,
he makes his way
to the edge of the lake,
drinking the nectar of life,
refreshing water.

This milieu is ideal.
to the eyes,
to the ears.

You can hear
birds chirping,
and if you look closely,
squirrels running
to and fro.

Life is wakening,
the forest is coming alive
with all its creatures.

A beautiful day
it will be.

PS.This poem is based on a painting I done.
