NaNoPoWriMo Day One: Missing Sunrise

April 1st is the first day of National Poetry Writing Month. To celebrate, I am involved in NaPoWriMo: I shall be writing and publishing at least one poem a day for the entire month. So here goes:

What things do we miss when we’re not looking or listening?

Missing Sunrise

When We’re Not Looking
Bread Dough Rises,
Clouds Move,
Children Grow,
Shadows Deepen.
The World Turns
And the Sun,
Fiery disc,
Light for our World,
Crests the Horizon.

When we’re Not Listening
Children Call Out,
Questions Go Unanswered,
The Wind Whispers,
“I love you” is Unheard,
Babies Cry,
Dogs Whimper,
And we Miss the
Sudden Hush
Of Birdsong
As the Sun Rises.

About debbiewritesstuff

I am a wife and mom in Minnesota with more than enough things to think about! For the past two years I have served with AmeriCorps, last year I helped children from grades K-3 with their reading through Minnesota Reading Corps. This past school year I taught social and emotional skills to preschool children through the LEAP Initiative in Southern Minnesota. I've been working on my own writing endeavors for a little while now: a novel that I have put on the backburner and poetry. I have a Master's degree Counseling and Psychological Services. I love history, family stories, taking pictures, singing in the church choir, reading, tracing the family tree, and oh, yes writing. I also love 'likes' and comments on my blog and I am tickled when someone chooses to 'follow me.'
