Analysis of Dawn
In abject stillness
Clouds softly creep
Enveloping the clear blue sky.
Gently a soft breeze
Advances through the trees
Awakening each little leaf and needle.
Mockingbirds and Whip-poor-wills
Embed asleep,napping till the light.
And cars glide by
On the nearby concrete ribbon.
The sun appears as the earth revolves
Feathered friends, sheep, and fliers
Arise to usher in the new beginning.
