Poem-A-Day Project: Day 1

Morning in Sunset

A hill slopes downward
Our house
Through the back window
The life of the hill
Reveals itself
Playing out
Before my eyes
Each and every day

Buzzed by fumbling
Bumble Bees
Rosemary spreads
Expanding the limits
Of its tiny
Empire of green

At the height of a fog-bound Sunset summer
That is no summer at all
The Lavender Blue
Dilly Dilly
And the Rosemary Green
Are surrounded by the
Straw-yellow of summer grass
The sand-brown of Sunset Earth
And the mist-grey of the Sunset Summer Sky
