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,
Crystalline reality,
...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.

wow...beautiful! I'm afraid the only thing I see at that time of the morning is a grouchy face in the mirror...mine! It's still dark when I leave for work...maybe Saturday I will have to try your way!

Lovely poem Tim. Daybreak, when the sun
slowly ascends and casts such breathtaking
shades of color upon the earth, is one of
my favorite times. You captured it nicely.
Thanks

Watching the dawn - over the Atlantic Ocean - there's nothing like it - except maybe watching a sunset over the Pacific????
