Melody of Dawn

Now awaken with the sounds of spring.
The up - up - down cooing of a lonesome dove 
and sparkling chirps of the unnamed morning bird.

Sun warms a brisk and dewy California.
The cool air breathes clean,
as the day's tendrils of color highlight 
the bluish gold and pink
of a broad ocean sky.

And morning is the only time of day
we have control.
The rest is positively unknown.

It is the only time of day, when alone with our thoughts
silent with our hopes, 
there is not yet other white noise.

Today rise to the hopeful calls
of the melody of dawn
and embrace the start of something new.
