Watching the Day Dawn

Up before dawn. Darkness wanted company so I came and sat with it a while in the gentle and heavy silence. And as the pale pink light began to seep across the sky it let go of my hand and slipped away without a word.

"Bound to suns and planets by invisible cords, I feel the flame of eternity in my soul." - Helen Keller

Lovely imagery! So many times I've promised myself I will be up early enough to watch dawn...this is the year!

Hi Mari :-)

One of my cats was scratching at the bedroom door and woke me and then my mind was wide awake so I got up. Dawn has a beautiful but fleeting pink light that is just wonderful.

Good to see you, thanks for popping in.

You capture the moment well, Susannah. The best part of the day is just before dawn; it's a special time.

Susannah,
Although I view the dawn everyday, I'll think of it differently now that I've read your phrase.
