Ah! the sky lightens...
not quite seven and the day is dawning.
Day break- yet it does not break at all
but creeps in silently on tiptoe as
the barely perceptible changes
in the sky whisper of the sun's coming.
Night gives way gently to day...
the moon fadng slowly as
the sun's light overtakes hers
outshines her, sending her
into deep sleep until its setting
invites her back into the eastern sky,
while the dying light of the sun
paints the western horizon
with an indescribable palette
of color...and the gloaming
settles gently into the
velvet dark of night.
Another day of living...
