Morning

Standard

scramble awake
dreams dissipate
covers removed
pressing feet
stands the body
through the frozen air
flipping switches
dispelling darkness
percolating the day
in multiple ways
dressing for the occasion
gathering items for use
communicating ideas
agreements made
processes begin
routines completed
although more to be done
amongst weaving thoughts
guiding the unwrapped day

-Jennie Nawrocki

A Tree

Standard

rooted in the ground
it spreads wide and long
withdrawn from the eye below
seeking moisture around
above leaves face sunlight
growing within view
shading one so close
each year a new ring
expansive in its build
casting a presence
ancient with wisdom
through vast weather
adapting with change
flowing with air
standing through extremes
awed by its abilities
from just a tiny seed.
