My Perfect Moment

The sky is black, night doesn’t cease

silence is surrounding me with peace.

A few rare minutes without noise or fight

before the new day dispels the night.

**

One second blackness is complete

the next a shade of light’s to greet.

A lonely voice of one timid song

moves with the darkness all along.

**

A redstar’s voice it makes me smile

a swallow, a thrush and a robin add to the pile

of wonderful voices, a choir of delight

and the blackbird’s song is the end of the night.

**

The black of the night, turns in a very dark blue

it gets lighter and brighter without much ado.

It’s only a moment I’ve got to greet this new day

before the noise, yells, cars, the usual way.

**

But these moments are precious, a nature’s rare gift

when my darkness  withdraws into daylight to shift.

A new day, a new light, a new start, a new chance.

This is the  one, perfect moment of romance.

Waking up to the blackbird’s song

a lovely sound it’s all along.

the lark it twitters right at dawn

by the edge of wood you see a fawn.

**

The breeze, it touches twig and bloom

the bees, they hum and search their room

to collect the nectar for their brood

spring is here and lifts your mood.

**

 

Carefully you watch the tree

find lizard and wren, and they both flee.

From far you hear a starling’s voice

So much spring and so much joice.

**

Bluebirds, finches, sparrows fly

argue, fight and then soar high.

They collect the very best

for their brood within the nest.

**

 

You walk and smile, sun on your skin

a soft wind in your hair and you lift your chin.

the hum, the songs, the twitter in your ear

and then you know: spring is here.
