Glistening

Glistening dew surrounds each hushed curve

…..caressing the landscape as it shrouds the forest

Hazy daybreak struggles to become the morning.

Gleaming sunlight drawing across the meadow

…..washing the fields and hillsides with its warmth

Afternoon’s long shadows attempting to own the earth.

Glossy low slung shadows creeping over treetops

…..illustrating still pond and flowing stream with depth

Evening’s pallor attempting to settle the valley to sleep.

Gloom of dusk sets in as day gives way to night

…..wrapping the days neatly in a blanket of quiet calm

Midnight looms waiting to give way to glistening dew again.
