There are bright twinkling stars obscured by a sprinkling of clouds.
Oh! Starry, starry night with a crescent moon to give light~
Then a hint of daybreak with some faint light, the light that reveals
more with each passing fantasy flight...
Explosion of red on horizon revealing silhouetted black clouds to the south.
The distant cock-a-doodle-do of the fighting red roosters echoes through the dark
outline of forest trees.
Sound that is floating upward and outward
greeting the sun inviting it to come on up to light and warm their world..
A Mockingbird chatters, an early riser, up and already singing his welcome to the
white-haired lady 'pon the porch..
There's a stillness and peace that saturates my being~peace, peace wonderful
A blazing sun now cast upon clouds a glow like a fire against chared blazing logs
crackling in the hearth warming the body through and through..
Nature greets the morn with open arms
instead of greeting it like one who greets the warmth of
hearth with hands rubbing and shivering waiting for the touch of heat.
