before dawn when the world is still. The air curling in from the window carried coolness and moisture. All the possibilities or none are present in this moment frozen outside time. Too early to rise; too late to return to sleep.
No sounds of trains, traffic or EBMUD to disturb my thoughts. Not even a bird singing, deer rustling or dog barking to make its presence known. No electronics, just quiet.
Anything more would not add to those lovely couple of hours.
Beautiful. Thank you.
I used to work nights, and on my nights off, it was so peaceful. No one was up and around, it felt as if the quiet was a gift.
You painted a picture perfect scene of tranquility- thank you, I enjoyed the painting.
Understood and shared! I love my morning “quiet time”
Hope you are doing okay – you’re in my thoughts
I didn’t know you are not only a writer, you are a Poet, too !
Mmmm- my favorite time.
Isn’t it amazing how many people don’t like the quiet? Immediately turning on people noise (TV, radio etc) rather than listening to nature or distant sounds
I most hardely agree,
I often write my poems in that kind of silence. Thank you.
