expertly frame the morning view,
Like a pair of paintings a curator placed
Close together for greater appreciation
Skies of blues,
Cotton ball clouds of layered whites.
Sunlight dappled on the shaddock tree leaves
and un-ripened fruit in the foreground,
The large, dark leaves of the breadfruit tree in the background.
Multiple shades of green.
The daily sight refreshes my spirit.
I turn my focus to the faucet
and add my praises to those of the singing birds
and crowing roosters
as the cold water refreshes my warm body.
Aiiee - ALLELUIA!
