You are my favorite time of day. It is the newness, the fresh start, the clean slate, that you offer that lures me from my slumber, the folds of my sheets, to greet you.I love to wake just before you have arrived and prepare myself to receive the gift of dawn. Light whispers into the sky, calling to the bird song. In response, a gentle chatter dances from branch to branch, rising to a full symphony of instruments. Shades of grey glimmer into the lush palette of being alive today. Thank you for inviting me to be reborn again.
