In the Hush


The dawn whispers good morning

Peeking above the mountain covers

Holding the dreams of silent lovers

A childish orb playing timid for show


Reluctantly it rises, the world yawning

And as it crests the peaks of height

Pushing back all trace of night

There I, warmed by the loving glow


It will rise to command the skies

Yet, now in the small of days

A single ray, sets to blaze

The meadow, wildflower rainbow


The reds, the blues, the vibrant hues

Glisten for this morning kiss

A moment of heavenly bliss

Nature in all her beauty bestowed


So, pass each day now, as you must

For etched is well my memory

By such a rare gift given me

In the hush, before sun grows

  1. With every sunrise, if one is apt to stop and just enjoy its moments, comes, with the sun’s rays, rays of hope for the new day. With every sunset, if one is apt to stop and just enjoy its moments, comes, with the sun’s disappearance, time to reflect on the day – good and/or bad – and allow the bad to settle in past the horizon to disappear like the sun, so that rays of hope can begin again with the next sunrise. In our crazy, busy world, these are the moments that bring us reflection and peace.

    I agree with Beth, it is my favourite time of the day, well, I like sunsets as well, but the quiet of the sunrise is almost mystical, magical, beautiful. Grand words my friend,
    All the best and may you enjoy a lovely week ahead,

    The dawn and the time just after sunset are the most magical times of the day.

    I am obsessed with sunsets and sunrises! There’s something about the stillness that comes when watching both, but particularly the rising of the sun, the golden hues cast upon mother earth, awakening everything in its light. Even indoors, I find myself drawn to the softness of everything the light touches, it’s an irresistible pull, and I want to step in between to bask in the light myself. Beautiful words, you captured that moment so perfectly! A new favorite! ❤
