Pink sky bewitching
the Georgia dawn.

I squiggle my bare toes
in the dewy grass, inhale
the new day’s promises.

Very nice. Good use of language squiggle And I like the idea of inhaling promises.

Blessed are the ones who do not wake up in the concrete jugnle, and can just squiggle their bare toes in the dewy grass. Luckily, even cities have patches of the green stuff. Maybe I'll try it.
