Poetry Challenge: Day 22

Happy Earth Day!! (but really, shouldn't Earth day be every day?!)

This morning I woke up to the sound of birds singing and the moment was so pleasant that I wanted to capture it in words. You know how when you wake up early and it is all quiet in the house and you hear the birds outside, and slowly the house and it's occupants wake and begin to move around? But the birds keep on singing.


the birds are singing
morning breaks
all the house is still-
the birds are singing
the house now stirs;
someone the kettle fills
the birds are singing
daylight reins
gone is the morning chill
the house is full of noises
and the birds are singing still
