Before It Burns Away

I admire an early morning view. There is a pre-dawn mist, and grass with dew. The beads of dew resemble diamonds everywhere. A slight chill accents the morning air. The calls of birds are heard all around. They somewhat make a harmonizing sound. If translated, they are saying “Get out of bed. Humans, you have an entire day ahead.” Without further explanation I must say, this is my favorite time of the day.
