The magic of morning

Sometimes, early morning

Is a magical place —

Magic

Where it feels as if

Dreams can come true

Dreams

Right there on the edge

Of the first apricot blush of dawn.

  8. Even though I find it difficult to get up early in the morning but I know that morning is the best time of the day especially to watch the darkness slowly disappearing in the light of the new day.

  13. Thank you for sharing your early morning. These pictures remind me of our Oregon Lake — not a lot of misty mornings here in Florida especially this time of year. It is dark and then it is bright and hot. Not much in-between.
