By Mike Turner

Dark night slowly lifts towards dawn
Jet black skies shade to deep blue
Gently, morning’s coming on
Fleecy clouds reflect sun’s hue


Sweet dew lies upon the grass
Birdsong fills expanding air
Sunlight grows as shadows pass
Leaves rustle in breezes fair


And as awakening from a dream
You sense the world has turned once more
And rise to take up and embrace
The promise of day’s opening door
