I love the morning dawn
As I leave the dream world,
Dog on leash
Into a simmering black and white.
Objects stand out in their forms
Against the widening sky
One by one they make their appearance
From the formless night.
Engines send their pungent smells
Waking up the sleepy eyes.
Chirping birds leave their warm nests
To seek their daily ration.
Little by little the light turns on the colours
White sky flourishes into a light blue
Black trees mellow into brown and green.
Rainbow sky forecasts its promise
‘gainst the seeping cold of evaporating dew.
Pigeons cooing, the world is awakening
Announcing the brightness which is always there.
