Morning Gold


“And even the sun in dawn chorus sings,
a celestial melody to the earth below.”

I’ve never been able to fathom why they call the rising of the sun “daybreak“…”morning has broken“, for there would seem to be nothing amiss in this morning’s beautiful dawn.  The sky was briefly washed with a brush dipped in gold — fifteen minutes later, snow flurries danced in the air.

This mourning dove (below) seems to have situated himself so he has the best view of this celestial melody.  How wise he is.

  1. That small bit of sun certainly is golden especially when it is usually overcast. The sun peeking out of the clouds sure makes ones spirits rise too.

  2. Whenever I hear the phrase “daybreak” it reminds of the dark of night being broken up by the rays of sun coming over the horizon. The “crack of dawn” makes me think of the first rays that peek over the horizon like someone opening a door a crack and letting the light inside the room out into the dark.
