I go to nature to be soothed and healed,


And to have my senses put in order.



John Burroughs




Another restless night


Sleep once again evades


I drive down to the lakeshore


My troubles now to contemplate



As I sit here pondering my life


A metamorphosis begins to occur


Another brand new day is dawning


And many life forms now begin to stir



The many songbirds eagerly call out


Their serenade is so soothing and free


They dont charge for their daily concerts


Always seeming to be filled with so much glee



Soon seagulls begin to chatter


They too know that lifes a gift


My mind now begins to wander


My inner thoughts now all adrift



A tiny chipmunk eagerly emerges


He too sits here peering at the dawn


Then hes off to find some breakfast


Merrily chattering his morning song



The big old tree on the tranquil lakeshore


Lifts its massive branches towards the sun


This sedentary life form also sagely knows


That a glorious brand new day has just begun



I soon close my eyes and listen


Lake breezes whisper in my ear


They tell me that Ive been foolish


They tell me to cast off all my fears



My negative thoughts emerge once more


And now I force them to slowly drift away


I begin to realize that life really does begin anew


For each and every living being each and every day



Why worry about our past regrets


Why torture ourselves with yesterday


What matters most is the rest of our lives


What matters most at this moment is today



Suddenly Im feeling much more relaxed and calm


My tensions now evaporating in the old trees shade


So now I just sit back close my eyes and eagerly listen


To a brand new and magnificently glorious sunrise serenade




2006, Ed Kostro

You read my poem today...I don't know what made me chose this one to get to know you by, but it was a wise and some how guided choice. So pleased to meet you! This, in it's own way, reminds me of something I wrote the other day...spirit of the moment...a comfortable yet transitional reach from what had come before. Sometimes the time we take to pause and reflect inspires the most rewarding words...these are touching...

Reviewed by Sherry Heim 5/30/2006
We tend to get so caught up in the prison of city life and city problems. We worry about that over which we have no control and stress about how others see us. All of this is stripping time off of our lives, time when we could be sitting back and marveling at all the beauty that we have been blessed with. Attitude is everything and you have placed a tranquil note upon mine with your gorgeous verse.
Take care,
Sherry

Oh Ed this is glorious poetry inspired and uplifting to every spirit! It makes so much more sense to see the beauty in each new day than to carry yesterdays baggage into it with you. There will be enough happening today to take care of. A great scripture for this one"Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof!" I love Sunrise serenade!Thank you! Also love the art and quote!;-)

A beautiful description of the morning pleasures which are so often overlooked in the rush of our lives, and yet they are priceless, just like the soft chatters of nature by sundown.

That's a keeper for a gloomy day - I too like the early morning while all are sleeping except nature itself.

You renew and revitilize our spirits with this soaring and refreshing composition..
It pays richly to escape periodically the yellow brick road...:)
The graphic and John Burroughs's quote sit well with each other..
