Alive



~~~

Mist hangs like a veil

Over water dead still

Teasing the vision

With ghosts in gray

Dawn has yet to shimmer

In places this low

~~~

Dew licks the leaves

Condensing and damp

As nature drinks the air

Drops drip to young below

The scent of decay

Rises from the floor

~~~

Nothing stirs

Silence weighs heavy

No song of breeze

No crescendo of life

Just an unseen clock

Ticking to nowhere

~~~

Moments stretch like taffy

Sugary sweet and long

Stillness pervades the spirit

Each breath a connection

Exhaling the heart

And nourishing the soul

~~~

It is here, always will be

The most ancient of things

Strongest in its frailty

Unburdened of future

We touch the holy

And we feel alive

~~~

    Gorgeous prose. I feel the chilly misty air, the possibilities, and the stillness of nature at dawn.
