Whats the story morning glory, I ask as I walk out on to the veranda. The sun and the sea greet me and my spirits are lifted. The sound of dawn so different from the night before, no chirping cricket no mosquito buzz just sea lapping the shore. Then I wake to traffic, rain and another dull London day.

Bright bursts of colour

God’s welcome to the new day

Telling us a tale.

********

I chose a Haibun this week because I wanted to use the phrase , ‘what’s the story morning glory’ and it has eight syllables in the line which does not meet any of the other disaplins in the challenge. The phrase is one we use when we meet someone up bright and early. Like the flower greeting the sun.

NaPoWriMo Day 17. Welcome Sun

NaPoWriMo  Day 17. Today’s prompt is to write a a welcome poem.

Welcome Sun

 Welcome to a brand new day

We watched you set and go away.

We mourned your loss as you went

Without your light we pray and repent.

Welcome, welcome brand new day

All our worries wash away.

Glorious light we rejoice to see.

Take our souls and set them free.

Dance to greet the brand new  day

The horrors of the night washed away.

All that seemed  wrong and out of true .

Is as it should be thanks to you.

 

You bring warmth and light for us to grow

We can work our land  and our seeds sow.

We grow under your loving gaze

Our land we work, our animals graze.

Neither we or our planet without you thrive

So each morning we welcome you and thank you for our lives.

 Welcome to a brand new day

We watched you set and go away.

We mourned your loss as you went

Without your light we pray and repent.
