Dawn's rays pierce the skies

penetrating the shadows of scattered trees

Birds chirp echoes in the soft silence

and hum of neighborhoods waking to rise

Soon the sun climbs

sweat starts to soak

Children laugh in sprinkler mists

under cloud drifts

over daydreamers in the park

The sun crosses the sky

Mother nature starts to close her eyes

in the painted horizon

the moon smiles

as the twilight dies

and yields infinite starlit skies

while closed eyes

slip into endless dreams of the night
