At the Breaking of Dawn

Cheryl is a published poet who has won awards for her work. She enjoys sharing about the wonders of nature in prose.

Dawning of day

Dawning of day

So silently the earth is quaking

As daylight pierces the atmosphere

The light of dawn now is breaking

A fresh new morning is near

The black of darkness is rolling away

The sun begins to shine

Making room for the entrance of a new day

The handiwork of the Divine

Radiant light bursts through the sky

Announcing a brand new start

Birds are chirping as they fly

The night is forced to depart

As the glory of morning unfolds

How blessed are those who look upon

A brand new story untold

At the breaking of a new dawn

Thank you for the kind words

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on September 14, 2019:

Beautifully said, Cheryl, and as I was reading it I began to reflect on this world as a day since we are said in Gen. 1:14 And realized we are at its sunset because we can see thing happening in the east as soon as it happens like Jesus said in Mat. 24:27. That makes me question whether we are ready for it or not.

Thanks for sharing it.
