dawn of man

Dawn of man Out of the night came the dawn a mild breeze blow petal off a rhododendron, a magic carpet on a whitewashed wall sunlight and shadow dance. The dogs were still asleep, the cock had not crewed Quietness, except for an old man fearing his death his solace is in the day. A plane across the sky leaves behind tired dreams of next year’s vacation. Alfredo is up starting up his little tractor harvesting carob beans before it get too hot; he used to have a mule took a long time back then; the mules made the landscape looks prettier. I have been here a long time a tranquil bay far from the sea leave to me soak up the peace before setting sail for the timeless ocean.
