Mindful Writing Challenge: Day 11


Today’s Small Stone was inspired by Christine Yablonski’s Small Stone (Thank You!)

Before Dawn

Today’s observation comes
light through small cracks.

Early hours and clouds hold daybreak
behind a dark gate unseen.

The day will be one of play
maybe see some art on display.

Sights and sounds gently stir
under sky’s dark cloak.

School bus lights shine through a window’s crack
It parks here and waits every day.

A jay calls, a dog barks, in the park
the family of hawks hunt for prey.

Among the dark our house glows
light leaks through the blinds small cracks.

Anticipation worn like a model’s robe
our first glimpse of the day reveal
But its story still untold.
