    The cold cover or morn’
    Embracing the moist grass
    As I walk barefoot to feel
    The opening of the day;

    The brisk of the breeze
    Chilling to the touch
    And yet I open my coat
    To capture the cool;

    Another step to awakening
    When the day appears and
    The world has yet to rise
    Except for those like me;

    i like to listen to the still
    when the streets are empty
    and the day freshly appears
    and life begins to surface

    I like to feel the whispers
    Of morn’ when the sun
    Opens its eyes just enough
    For the flowers to bloom

    Another moment arisen
    As the letters of joy are
    Painted across the sky on
    Clouds that once were dark;

    And now all that I went through
    As the night strangled my thoughts
    And the evening laughed at pain
    Has been removed by morn’s arrival;

    Take a walk with me….

    I'll take a walk with you..
    breathe the air you breathe
    coz it awakens mountains within us
    that made us wish we could fly..

    I was thinking bout how life starts when silence creeps in...thanx for the piece!
