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

    I love that time of day. Everything’s so quiet, there’s no one awake yet to disturb me. 😁 I especially love it in the summer, when I can do yoga while I watch the sunrise. It has become one of my favorite things, and I miss it now that there’s snow on the ground.
