Sunrise With You
(Life In The Woods)
Soft yellow sunshine
Breaks atop the rolling peaks
Of West Virginia mountains.
Together we sit
On the banks of a muddy river,
Gazing sheepishly upon
The scenery before us.
It is dawn —
The beginning of a new day.
For some it’s the beginning of a new life.
It can be regarded
As a reminder
That we were created for each other.
See the great golden orb rising
Up into the violet sky,
Glowing brighter and stronger with each second.
Many creatures stir in the forest
Beneath the light of the rising sun
And give life to woody slopes and brown riverbanks.
Such is our love…
It brightens a dull life
And warms a chilly heart.
Fate, perhaps coincidence, managed to uite
Two paths which began
So far apart.
Here at this wonderful
We are where we should
Have always been:
For Readers, Writers, and Lovers of Historical Fiction
My journey to a new life
Forget where your feet are and simply enjoy the view.
