Morning creeps on feline feet
gentle and velvety dark,
clambers over the garden gate
and lands in dewy grass.
She dances in between the trees,
her light translucent glass,
leaving dewy diamonds
wherever her feet pass.

My response to Poets United Midweek Motif: Morning Poem
Sumana asks us to capture in new poems the time when the day is new and we are out of our slumber. She has given us inspiration with a haiku from Basho, a quote from Khalil Gibran and lines from Langston Hughes, as well as poems by Mary Oliver, Emily Dickinson, Baudelaire and Paul Laurence Dunbar.
