The kiss of the dew in the morning
A whisper of breath in the air
Seen, but not really noticed
Without you beside me to share.
The sound of the birds in the treetops,
The stealth of a cat on the prowl,
The rustling of mice in the hedgerow,
The grumbling of the dog’s warning growl.
Lights from the distance flash past me,
Dazzling in their blinding glare,
Rousing me from my musings,
A reminder to be more aware.
