quietly

in stillness-
in the quiet
of this morning;

a new day

this is the time
for me to
sit and be still-
to  revel
in it all

the sun rises
birds begin their
songs
and quietly,
yes quietly
i sit

thankful
 for a 
new day-
grateful
for it
all.

M & M,
I love it....it is my most favorite time of day as well becuase it is quiet and the world has not yet woken up :) We both did quiet today; imagine that!

Lovely post again my friend. I love it when I can just sit quietly like that and think about God's blessings.

A new day, a new beginning, a new change to experience a miracle.

I love the quiet of the morning! My favorite time of day to be up and ate em and even outside is around 4:30 to 5:00 AM. It is so crisp, clear, breathtaking and QUIET.

Hi Melody-Mae .. I love the quiet of morning when the blackbird is up singing .. and I'm lying quietly listening to the dawn chorus as it wakes .. bliss - with the sun streaming in as it too rises ..

Cheers - quietness is just lovely and your poem is so simple, yet so applicable .. Hilary

Beautifully written.

I love waking up to the birds' songs. Reminds me so much of the creation story. I thank him for the hills, trees, the birds and all his creation.
