The Morning Sun

The warmth of the creeping dawning sun
Precipitates light dew drops.
The grass shimmers and leaves weep..
Ants start to the nests and soils,
So creepers of the savanna toil and moil
Eggs crack in harmony with the skies
And chicks sound their first cries.

The light kisses rabbit holes
And beetles in their sand pores..
The beasts shake and shrug
Against a new day– a new hunt.

Man takes his hoe and goes..
To plough and hope for more.
More crop, more life– more days
More of the sun’s rays.
