Good morning! :)

Peace reigns the night;
nothing disturbs the silence;
the sun, still asleep.
I step outside
and look up at diamonds
sparkling on velvet.
The gentle hand
of the wind lifts my hair and
caresses my face.
The moon rises,
a quarter slice of beauty
in the eastern sky.
A meteor
streaks overhead and is gone
just as rapidly.
The first light of
morning reaches its fingers
slowly towards me.
Poetry was
made for times such as this ... the
moments before dawn.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

I love that picture, Karla. The moments before dawn are so sweet, especially when you know that a transformation of sorts is about to occur, as we head from night to light.

Take care,

Well executed pen on one of my favorite times of the day.

Karla - I'm sorry I missed it. "Diamonds sparkiling on velvet." A poetic line,if there ever was a perfect one written. Your brain is better than mine for composing so very, very early in the A and M. Thanks for this one... a gem - Bill
