Hello everyone! I'm just making my entrance, fashionably late. But, as a consolation, I've brought coffee. For Brenda's week 18 prompt, Silence, I set out to write something a little happier, just to show that I could. This poem reflects the wonder of that magical hour before the sun rises and the birds start serenading with their sweet songs.

Most days of the week, I get up at around 4:30 in the morning. While I would not consider myself a morning person, I do cherish the time I get to savor my coffee and take in the silence before the noise of the day creeps in.

Thank you, Brenda, for these prompts!

That first sip

before the Sun

is the nectar of life

when the Moon

still has secrets

to whisper

and the stars wink

before disappearing.

A second sip

as the horizon lightens

and the sky explodes

in vibrant hues.

This is the magic hour

full of sweet delights

for those willing

to receive the gift.
