    In the stillness of a silent, pre-dawn morning
    I await your arrival with anticipation
    sitting in the open air, drinking coffee
    on a crisp, winters morning

    A small frontline of wispy
    floating cloud
    sways back and forth
    the morning star is still bright
    in a pearly grey sky

    You announce your impending arrival
    by turning the pearly grey to silver,
    to palest yellow, to deep gold

    As the sky fills piece by piece
    with your sunshine
    you rise in my world
    on my horizon
    in a display of splendour

    This is the moment
    I have been waiting for
    when you rise
    as a perfect globe

    This is when you "shine"
    turning my world
    magenta
    shot through
    with splashes of pinks

    No artist could capture
    the pure beauty of this colour

    Within minutes you change
    to a firey red, then
    to a deep burnt orange
    peppered with deep gold
    and finally
    to bright, clear, sunflower yellow

    I sit and stare at you in awe
    and feel sorry for those
    who are blind and cannot see
    your magnificence

    You are mother nature's
    greatest work of art

    As I sit and look at you
    I know only complete peace
    and pure happiness
    for you are so beautiful
    so serene

    And I treasure
    our pre-dawn rendezvous

    Kitana...

    i, too, have enjoyed such pre-dawn rendezvous...as morning's sunrise race across a silent sky...and, slowly, sunshine makes its way...over mountain's peaks and tall trees sway...as its magnificence takes my breath away, i tip my hat and start my day.

    enjoyed this peace.

    a radiant view captured in you as i awaken
    taken by rays of heaven reflecting from your eyes
    your golden hue illuminates the sky to crisp blue as the universe looks at you at it's preparation saying "here's a wish for all seasons...."

    as i take a sip or two of my coffee i put down the cup as you catch me gazing up asking "what are thinking??"
    i reply "oh nothing" coming back to earth after third heaven sinking...

    thanx for this inspiration
    thanx for this peace of the day...

    a..thank you and I share your thoughts, this is a beautiful time of the day to sit and wait and watch...

    baller..thanks for the read and the words..isn't it strange how we equate things in nature with peace and silence, I guess it's because that's exactly the feeling they give when you are in their presence....

    j'hiah...thanks for the words...glad you were peacefully inspired..
