Just Before Sunrise

I decided not to meditate this morning.

Instead, I sat outside breathing the crisp, cool, autumn air

and watched the dawn paint the sky with its cotton candy colors

while the leftover silvery beams of the moon’s light

began to dampen and fade to wisps

becoming the shimmering dew on the grass, the sparkling diamond droplets on the spiders’ silky webs,

And the sleepy mistiness of the early day that

always comes just before sunrise.
