1706



one bird's chant -
anchoring the new day
coolness of dawn

coolness of dawn -
echoes in the empty street
where thoughts gather

where thoughts gather
rosary beads spin between light -
alas! the night was

I am sitting on the porch right now - and I was when the sun came up, and I heard the first bird song. So, I get this.

Have a great sunday gilena.
