Sleeping swan

on this crisp sunny morning
just as the mist clears away
a sleepy swan slowly wakes
marking the start of her day

enveloped in her white wings
protected from the cold night
an orange beak peeping through
this bird is an awesome sight

a black beady eye watching
so aware of life around
waiting for the time to swim
as she moves without a sound

raising its head to the sky
stretching her wings out wide
slipping into the waters
no more need to sleep and hide
