When Time Stands Still

When Time Stands Still

It is still early as the sun has barely broken the dawn
Sky, a pale yellow-grey and dew clings tightly to the grass
The early bird yet to waken and give us his morning song
A blanket of silence comforting and welcome
Precious solitude invaluable before facing the day
It is in these moments that time stands still
I am gifted with peace and I give thanks

    If one gets up early, this is the perfect time to be in sync with oneself and nature. Beautifully written Christine

      Thank you Sherry. I’ve been in a writer’s block for weeks but I looked out of the window this morning and there was all the inspiration I needed!
