Half an hour before sunrise

Half an hour before sunrise.

Half an hour before the Sunrise
That’s a time I love the best
The silence is so beautiful
And the morning feels so fresh.
That’s when the birds all start to sing
As they celebrate the day
And tell the world it is that time
The Sun is on its way.

I look out from my window
At the trees across the way
As those birds sing in them joyfully
And greet the new born day.
As the Sun peeps through those two tall trees
It’s such a wondrous sight
As it awakens in my soul 
Such strains of pure delight.

Half an hour before the sunrise
It’s a magic time of day
As all the dust of the day before
It has been swept away.
As those birds they sing so sweetly
I think they’re telling me
Wake up my child, wake up, wake up!! 
And feel life’s mystery.

    Hi Peter, Wishing Vera, yourself and yours a happy New Year and all the best for 2014. Well, I'm in the land of nod at the time you speak of. I'm not alive until midday. What a thing to admit. Anyway, I can say I've seen and heard the early morning for your poems, as always are so descriptive. It is so easy to feel the joy you feel as you look out upon each scene. Your lines are so descriptive we feel we are right there with you. A great read. Have a good day. Later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Thank you so much Michael, I'm up before four every morning taking the dog for a walk. I love the early mornings, so quite, a time to enjoy my own company while the world slumbers. Thank for all your wonderful comments, my friend...peter

    Thank you SuZ, maybe it is time for you to take a trip back to our beautiful country. I wouldn't be anywhere else in the world. Went back to England years ago, and all I wanted to do was get back to WA. You have a fabulous new year my friend, And thanks for all your kind comments...peter
