A Winter Dawn
Banana-cream and apricot
arose in the eastern sky;
Softly blending with shaded-greys,
it quietly caught the eye.
Dawn is magic along the horizon
before the sun climbs aloft;
Winter mornings are specially-embellished
with colours more muted and soft.
Snowflakes mirror the pastel tones,
adding their touch for the day;
Beauty spilled from nature's palette
and meant to come our way.
