New Day Dawning


       Today, I leave my home earlier than usual.  Surprisingly, the world is shrouded in a cloak of translucent fog.  A halo of silvery light surrounds the street lamps, giving an ethereal look to the quiet street.  Stillness tiptoes around our sleepy little town as if encouraging Day to linger in its bed a little longer than usual.   The hazy backdrop invites me to reflect on the beauty of the predawn morning.  How peaceful the world seems before the hustle and bustle of everyday life!  How it calls early-risers to think deep thoughts and ponder possibilities!  I like this peaceful time of day.  I marvel at the beauty all around me.  I think my deep thoughts and ponder possibilities for the fresh, awakening day.

About bjdonaldson

I'm an average woman who enjoys reflecting on life, writing poetry and ponderings, and having a good laugh. DIY, baking, and cycling are fun, too. If you visited me, I'd invite you in for a cup of coffee and a little chat. I am a Literacy Coach, Reading Specialist, and former classroom and Reading Recovery teacher at an elementary school. Getting up in the morning is not hard; I still love making a difference in the lives of children and teachers.

  1. It is so nice to start my day with your post even though it is now hours past when you wrote this. You’ve described a time I rarely get to experience because I am a night owl. Lovely post


  2. Being awake in the early mornings over the past few days, I have been attuned to sounds around the house and outside the house that I was never aware of before. Love the images your words paint.
