"The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don't go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want. Don't go back to sleep. People are going back and forth across the door-sill where the two worlds touch. The door is round and open. Don't go back to sleep".
- Rumi.


Upon opening her eyes, it was there…

cotton white and pastel pink, swimming in a

background of ocean blue.

She wondered how many mornings this

same sky had waited to greet her…or perhaps

there was a unique sky that commenced with each dawn...

how would she know, unless she took notice?

Gazing out at the clouds, she smiled, recalling a game she

and her sister had played as children, and as she drew in a deep breath,

her eyes slowly traced the wings of a butterfly.

“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you,

don’t go back to sleep.”…words she promised to

engrave in her memory.

Reviewed by Cryssa C 6/22/2010
This is so true. I love watching the dawn creep in on angels' wings...setting the sky aglow with a palette of soft pastels. I think that because fewer people see the sunrise's they are made special for those who gaze upon them.

I see an angel in the sky. gorgeous. And she came to greet an equally gorgeous girl as she awoke from her slumber. You are so beautiful and you can't help but share it with those of us who are awake and who look for it in you. Many blessings, J'nia <> <

Beautiful, silken poem ~ I truly love the ending and message.
"The breeze at dawn..." is one of the poems I say to myself each morning at breakfast. Another of my favorites each morning is "Don't sit with indifferent people..." I love Rumi quotes to help get the day off to a daring start!
You are a poet I will read often.
Blessings,
Christine

As a very early riser, I believe that's true.

Dawn, Yesterday of course you know, was the Summer solstice...I am always affected by nature..This morning, after a restless night, I woke up at exactly "dawn"...I never get up this early, I write late at night when my muses are alive and kickin..I got up went to the bathroom, and decided to stay up. As Rumi says, don't go back to sleep, such wise words, I am so grateful to have been able to welcome this day in at that early hour..You are right, there are secrets in the breeze at dawn... Lovely write for me to read on this special morning in Connecticut...I love your writing and it always speaks to me with "your secrets", my friend...

Peace, love and light,
Amber "V"
