In the Peace of Dormant Day


Sunday, July 29, 6:15 am

I thought I was going to get to see the sun rise this morning. There was a brief moment when all was calm and the sky was streaked with red. The whole world was filled with anticipation it seemed; and I was part of it.  But then the clouds came and covered the small, wavering rays of the new day. This happened slowly, the clouds creeping over the horizon so that I didn’t notice it right away. Now two birds are bickering outside. The moment of peace has passed and all is beginning to awaken with a clatter to the hectic realism of life. There’s always tomorrow I suppose. Maybe then I’ll be able to hold on to the ever-seeking sun for a moment longer.

This is what I saw. It is also how I felt.

  1. Nice post.

    It reminds me of one of the mornings over the weekend when I was away. I got up really early, and lay out on the balcony, watching the stars, and waiting for the sunrise, but it just got lighter, no amazing sunrise. However, it was made up by the fact that I saw three shooting stars within 10 minutes.

    1. Thanks Charlotte. I find sometimes not receiving what we expect often works out for the best, as it surely seemed to in your experience.
