Morning Has Broken-Inspirational Poetry in Five

It’s Friday again and you know what that means!  Inspiration in the form of Poetry in Five.  I love linking up with the ladies at Lisa-Jo’s site because they are the most wonderful ladies!  Feel free to check us out sometime and join in for your own Five Minute Friday.  Today’s word is BROKEN and actually I think we did this word before as I wrote a story about “Broken Vessels” (click left to read that one) and one of those God things I experienced several years ago when I donated a prayer shawl to a stranger on the other side of the USA.  So I guess today I will take this word in a different direction.




Morning Has Broken


Morning has broken

and Dawn turns to Day,

The Sunlight

it Dances

Where butterflies play.

And bees make their honey

They buzz right along,

Whilst birds fly toward heaven

Singing their song.

The tender buds open,

Springing forth from the dew-

As Earth wakes from slumber

Making Everything new.

And so the wheel continues,

Each passing day Reborn-

Another chance to Now embrace,

The magic that is Morn.

Morning Has Broken Cat Stevens

Forsythia in the sunlight. Photo I took with a quote from the song.


This poem was inspired by the song “Morning Has Broken” by Cat Stevens.  My uncle Mike loved this song and used to sing it on his guitar (he has since passed from Pancreatic cancer).  I too have always loved it and its beautiful lyrics.  It makes me want to sing outside with my guitar ..right to the heavens!  My words cannot quite compare to the song, but I have embedded a video so you can enjoy the beauty of “Morning has Broken”.

This video is SO beautiful..with birds and flowers and all.  It reminds me of how I feel about my garden.  Full lyrics to song included in video.  If you can’t see the video click HERE to go to it.

May it inspire your day today.  Look around you…see all the glory that is Earth and what we have been blessed with as a new day dawns today my friends.

Until next time- Live Inspired,
