A Poet's Dozen - Dawn Watch

eyes drink in darkness before sun colors the sky ~ clock chimes the new hour Dawn’s silence speaks tranquility, devoid of life’s perplexity. So I with the morn, while still alone read, ruminate, sit still and wait. Reassured by morningtime’s constancy, resolute, today’s afflictions I face. Your Word gives me strength and serenity as this new day quietly treads with grace; I feel renewed, wrapped in Your warm embrace.

Very nice, Kim. I've gotten use to waking between 3 and 4 a.m. Not intentionally, but my internal clock is determined that I wake while it's still dark. I like being awake when everyone else is still asleep.
