Morning Stars



Stars are still sharp
in the western sky,
but beginning to fade
under the approaching 
light of dawn in the east.

I come outside early

wanting to catch 
the first note of birdsong
announcing the start
of another glorious day.

Dawn softly 
speaks 
three words:
Wait.
Watch.
Listen.
