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 must admit, there is something about the calm stillness of a morning before the sun rises. As much as I love sunsets, nothing beats watching nature turn to gold as the sun peaks above the horizon, highlighting everything in her wake. This is so beautifully expressed, my dear friend.

      The light and shadows cast by the rising sun are always unique and beautiful. The world seems quiet and unhurried in these moments. I am glad you connected with this image! ❤

    Sunsets understandably get all the attention, but the time before dawn can be equally spectacular. I like the imagery of this piece, Brad.
