Analysis of Dawn
Still imbibed with the chill of night.
As bird songs pull
First strings of light,
Upon a sleepy world.
Mists in lowlands retreat,
Revealing an unwelcome side of shadow.
A crow pecks at the roadside.
Human grief, ours alone to ponder.
The sun shines regardless,
Reflecting rainbows from black feathers.
Another uncompromising cycle starts.
