    The quiet nature of dawn,
    Tranquility enraptured in silence
    Interrupted by the intermittent voice
    Of its awakening residents;

    The day begins with unsettled artistry,
    Dew resting upon blades of grass,
    Thin covers of overnight frost
    Melting under the entrance of the

    Sun – the lead character this day,
    Shining confidently in its place
    Assured that today may be
    Another award winning role;

    The characters never changes
    And yet there is always an innovative
    Performance each time the curtain
    Rises to release light over darkness;

    I’m amazed at the symphony,
    The music played by the sparrow
    Providing a melodic overture for
    The completion of the master’s work;

    Together, watching over nature’s creatures
    beginning their journey of discovery
    guiding them through their search
    to find the first meal of the day is

    an interlude of serenity…
    covered by a veil of peace…
    held by those awakening from
    a momentary scene of tears…

    To be continued…

    <deep sigh> How peaceful was this? Your words so eloquently descibed the break of day. I can't wait to hear more, scribe.
