break of day

April 25, 2006


the stillness of night
the breaking of dawn
nothing to hear but the air conditioner
and the soft echoe of my typing
light glows from my tiny lamp and computer screen

all’s quiet
save my bumbling around as I work
everything eases into the day
morning has come, day-break’s just ’round the corner
street lights glow
the air sits heavily all about
shadows are cast– light pole, tree, the like
steady beating of my heart, steady breath
peace surpasses all
cool air resides
cozy inside, I wait, I work
leaving a long night, short sleep
ready for the day, almost
birds still slumber
even the cricket has taken refuge
all alone
save God and me
a time of utter peace, awakening
He still speaks…
