Morning Glory

Morning Glory
Haywood County, NC (image from web)
from a Facebook post by Sharon Lawson

The dawn was breaking over hills of blue.
It touched the hilltops and the mists below.
From where I stood, it seemed that giant waves
Were frozen still in near and distant rows.
And right before me, in a splash of sun,
The colors of the leaves were seen to glow—
The greens and reds, the lights and darks beside,
As in the distance, hills and sky communed.
The sky? Can I describe it now with words?
I will not try, except to say it was
 A wonder—cirrus touched with rose of dawn,
In early morning's blue and indigo.
