In past years, I have enjoyed different parts in the State of Wisconsin, visiting family, friends or just getting in my car to where it led me. A beautiful area of our country, especially in the early morning hours ~ seems that has become my time to reflect with the rising of the sun. But, I do enjoy the coolness of the evenings when the stars begin to appear filling the the night’s sky with diamonds and the shadows the moonbeams create.
But in tribute to one of our great states ~ and to those who live in Wisconsin, I want to share the following with you all ~~ simply …
The hour was between
Night and dawn.
The moon greeting the sun
Hazy transformation seen.
The warmth of the earth
Coupled with cool night air
Creating a foggy cover
Blanketing the dells girth.
Smokey clouds moving slowly
In and around the evergreens,
Rolling over the hillsides,
Gently caressing the earths’ form.
The sun began to peek
Bidding good morn to the moon,
Bidding farewell to the morning star.
Warming the foggy cover to morning dew.
Sleeping life began to stir
To welcome yet another day.
Feeling the heat of the sun
Clearing the sky to a crystal blue.
The sight of such beauty did spawn
A peacefulness in my being.
Only to await the hours’ return
Between night and dawn.

Hope you enjoyed a “morning in Wisconsin” ~ truly a beautiful creation of God’s work. We are truly blessed to have such artwork to enjoy …. each and every day ~ everywhere. For this, I’m truly thankful to Him.
To all have a great day! Enjoy the beauty around you ~ it’s free and gives one peace, but only if one takes the time to view such marvels all around. God Bless.
