To each his own. To me my own.

Just Before Dawn

You are a blessing each day – here for only a short time before the sun fades away your fairness.

So very quiet you are, dawn. You are the smallest hint of periwinkle blue on the horizon – you know, my bedroom is painted a resemblance of your hue.

Yours is a time that needs no words, where somber reflection and deep thoughts always ensue. As I gaze at the mere suggestion of your arrival above the lake, I cannot help it – I remain entranced by your beauty. You demand and receive my full attention.

Wishing I could hold still this moment in time. Bottle you for my own. To be captured and released at whim, as I desire to see you even more.

Lest I forget, you are my own. The sweetest most mesmerizing moment of every day…
my breaking dawn.

Until the change of time.
