Dawn Gives Birth to Color


The white-brass
color of the skies
before sunrise.

Dawn gives birth to color,
warming earth's edge,
where soon the sun
will break the horizon.

The gradual growth
of this morning
into this day.


This ordinary moment
will be etched in memory.
The authority of God
proclaimed in new creation.

Even if you were here,
no words would be spoken.

The illumination of dawn
asks silent praise
for the generosity
of our uncontainable God.
