Dawn of a new day



Pics...Another Lake dawn. Coffee at dawn

Dawn
Dawn
Deep breath
This is my moment
Mine alone
The moment I share with no one
The day in its infancy
Limitless possibility
Crisp
cold
Fresh
Bold
Hot drink
Time to think
Every sip of coffee
Courses through me
Like a shot of bourbon
Magic light
Goodbye night
Hope rises
With the sun
sun rises
Chases the dark
Caresses
Colors
Everything stark
New, undisturbed
Today will be superb
Can feel it
With the chill
In my bones
Welcome to my moment..
Dawn

hhm... love the picture you paint with words as well as the picture you chose...i hate waking up early but once i am up and have a coffee in my hands it is really nice to watch a new day begin...and the rest of the world come alive...you almost feel like you were a part of it...when i wake up really late ( even though i love it) i feel like the day started without me

thats so true..youre witnessing the start of something new..

Well all you late sleepers are in good company. Benjamin Frankln was a notorious late sleeper. He was once woken early..and had this to say..

"I looked at my watch, which goes very well, and found that it was but six o clock; and still thinking it something extraordinary that the sun should rise so early, I looked into the almanac, where I found it to be the hour given for his rising on that day. I looked forward too, and found he was to rise still earlier every day towards the end of June; and that no time during the year he retarded his rising so long as till eight o clock. Your readers, who with me have never seen any sign of sunshine before noon, and seldom regard the astronomical part of the almanac, will be as much astonished as I was, when they hear of his rising so early; and especially when I assure them, that he gives light as soon as he rises. I am convinced of this.

Sly Franklin claimed that a noted philosopher assured him that he was most certainly mistaken, for it was well known that "there could be no light abroad at that hour." His windows had not let the light in, but being open, had let the darkness out.
