In stillness of impending dawn,
...I rise forth from my slumber,
Awakened by the silence,
...No thoughts to mind encumber.
I stand upon the edge of time,
...twixt darkness and the light,
...twixt morning and the night.
Breathing in the fragrant scent,
...With freshly opened eyes,
I float upon the winds above,
...Gaze down from cloudless skies.
I see such beauty spread below,
...I hear the siren's song,
Touch the beauty of the rose,
...I capture all I long.
For at my feet the world does lie,
...Its portals opened wide,
Elysian delights unfold,
...As now I walk inside.
Then from the east, the rising sun,
...As quiet slips away,
All awaken to earth's bustle,
...And so begins my day.
