Quiet Morning

The Writer, Vernon Wade

Vernon Wade is a poet, author and freelancer. He has been published in The Gorge Literary Journal, Dualsport Rider Magazine, Hack’d Magazine, The Sidecarist, ROB Magazine and The Hood River News.

The world fills him with wonder.  When he looks at the sky he is lifted into flights of fancy, when he stares at the earth he is drawn beneath its surface. He is delighted to find the macrocosm and the microcosm equally mesmerizing.

It is a quiet morning so far, but soon it will wake.

The birds will start to chatter,

a rooster will crow and several more will answer.

Somewhere up the canyon a dog will start a conversation

which will last for hours and involve most of his neighbors.

The frog chorus will begin to practice for the spring recital.

As the night fades and pale light bleeds in from the east,

ducks will rise creaking from the pond,

wings churning the air.

But right now,

this moment,

only the murmur of a distant brook can be heard.
