The Unfolding Of Dawn in St. Vincent & the Grenadines

 

 

 

It’s a pleasure to watch nature unfold at dawn

And witness the beginning of a new morn

The sun rising in all its glory

As humming birds visit the hibiscus tree

 

 

The quiet of the day so still

The orange butterfly on my window sill

Oh’ what beauty is there to see

As cocks and hens alight the tree

 

The mountains no longer threatening

The darkness fades the sun shines in

A blend of colors, the flowers bloom

My neighbor swept by with her bamboo broom

 

The little children slowly come to

The excitement in their voices to behold the new

Day, as it unravels its promises

Of fun, laughter, hugs,and kisses

 

 

As I take in the scene before me

I think to myself, there is truly

A God above who gave us such beauty

The unfolding of dawn, in scenic S.V.G

My windows I flung open wide

To look at a sun that seems to smile

<

strong>Birds chirping in the trees

The sound of laughter, the humming of bees

 

 

On days like these I hit the beach

To feel the sand beneath my feet

The sound of the waves calm my mind

As the cool wind caress my aching spine

 

 

 

I will sit and gaze across the horizon

 At the blue sea from the sky’s reflection

Look at the way the water twirl

Like the body of a dancing girl

 

 

Oh, what joy there is to be

Alive, happy, and totally free

To explore and enjoy such beauty

To be one with the wind, to be totally free
