Morning Scene from the Window

Day 16 of NaPoWriMo.  Missed finishing the poem yesterday.  Today’s prompt is to write a terzanelle – which combines aspects of villanelle and terza rima. Where I thought I needed the poem to flow a little better in places, I took slight liberties with the form.  I also went with the alternate couplet route in the final quatrain.

Sunshine seeping thru the leaves,
dewdrops watering the field,
shadows dancing on the eaves,

gentle breeze getting distilled,
birds making homes in the trees,
dewdrops watering the field-

filtered moisture from breeze.
Sunshine sweetening the deal-
birds making homes in the trees,

branches joining in with zeal,
hummingbird flutters its wings,
sunshine sweetens the deal.

Robin strutting on lawn, sings
an ode to the sun and spring,
as hummingbird flutters its wings,

and more birds chime in and sing,
an ode to the sun and spring.
Sunshine seeping thru the leaves,
shadows dancing on the eaves.
