    Artwork by my beautiful soul-sister, 
       Julia Fehrenbacher  

It’s the mystical time of day
when others are still rolling over
far away in dream land
with hands not ready to dance
with the snooze button.

when voices, beeps, drips, or 
creaking of the house,
are not heard
only the stillness within me is.

when the first bird serenades
me with joy and hope
as the darkness of the sky turns 
into beautiful hues of brilliant blue
 melting onto the sides of the houses
 and into the streets
becoming more and more distilled
 eventually becoming a full palette of color
as the sky cracks open
and illuminates  into a new day.
