Dawn Thoughts – July 9, 2014

Before Dawn

Before Dawn

Before Dawn

blue clouds swirl
before dawn’s birth
lights shine afar
this cold morn
silence reigns supreme
in my world
blue clouds swirl


laying in the heart of dawn
sleepless from the stifling heat,
I heard the song of the muezzin
calling to all those who believe
a bird called out to a companion
first purple rays of sun slipped through
the wooden shutters of my room
as I sit here years have past
now no muezzin makes his call
a church bell here strikes the hour
Djibouti is a mirage of dawn


illusions of time
travelling where no life exists
morning mirages

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
