Daybreak June 24, 2014

IMGP1920Owls grow silent

Grass starts to glow

Birds start singing

The cock starts to crow


Sunrise is here

Daylight has broken

All without orders

Having been spoken

Aah . . . that’s better!

Love! And the metal rooster is fabulous!

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

That rooster lives at Village of the Arts ~ an art community in Bradenton. It’s as big as me.

The natural order needs no words!

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

Just a paintbrush and a pot of paints.

I love to hear the birds when they first start to sing in the mornings.:)

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

It is lovely to listen to the world waking up.

Always grateful for a new day as it begins, Nancy. Lovely poem.

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

Each new day gives us another chance to “get it right.” 😎

anotherday2paradise - June 24, 2014

Absolutely so. 🙂

5. Tammy - June 24, 2014

Good morning Nancy!

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

Bon Jour, Tammy!

6. Val Boyko - June 24, 2014

What a lovely way to wake up 🙂

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

It’s nice to know that the world carries on . . . even while we sleep.

7. NancyTex - June 24, 2014

I would give anything to trade in my current nature wake-up call for a rooster. At this moment mine is a horny stray cat. That thing has been in heat for a week now, and the sounds it makes… shudder.

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

That is NOT a fun way to wake up, NT ~ cats make terrible alarm clocks.

NancyTex - June 24, 2014

The worst!

8. valleygrail - June 24, 2014

Morning, my favorite part of the day! And I haven’t made any mistakes, yet.

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

Yes! We get to start with a CLEAN SLATE!

9. Grannymar - June 24, 2014

I am often awake to greet the dawn, and love the peaceful silence before the chorus begins.

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

My favorite sunrise was overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. All quiet and still except for the constant flow of waves.

Dracula is reading this poem thinking, “Huh?”

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

There’s a Dracula commercial for breakfast bars that touts the break of day and Dracula replies, “Who knew?” 😎

11. Pix Under the Oaks - June 24, 2014

Lovely! The birds on the Tiny Ten have had lots to say the last few weeks!!!

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

I wonder if birds are greeting the day with cheers . . . or jeers!

“C’mon! Not yet. Turn that light off. What does a nightingale have to do to get a bit of shut eye in the morning?”

12. Don - June 24, 2014

Great poem Nancy. “All without orders, having been spoken.” Wonderful!

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

Thanks, Don. It’s wonderful how life carries on day after day.

13. jannatwrites - June 24, 2014

I enjoyed this! I wish the kids were more like daybreak when it comes to doing chores (you know… they get done without orders 🙂 )

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

Haha! What would parents do with all their spare time if they didn’t have to remind the kids to do their chores?

14. diannegray - June 24, 2014

I’ve got birds nesting in the tree off my writer’s nook. I just love it! As soon as I hear them singing I know the sun is about to rise (maybe they’re giving the orders). Lovely poem 😀

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

Maybe it is the birds who urge the sun to rise.

15. livelytwist - June 24, 2014

You make daybreak seem like magic. It is magic . . .

nrhatch - June 24, 2014

Here’s to the magic of a new day!

16. Three Well Beings - June 29, 2014

I am so far behind in my reading, but here I am enjoying this lovely “ode to morning” as my day ENDS! LOL! But it’s still an inspiration for tomorrow. 🙂 So nice, Nancy!

nrhatch - June 29, 2014

Thanks, Debra! Even if we arise at cock’s crow, there are never enough hours in the day to “catch up” with everything that catches our attention. We do what we can, with what we have, where we are.

The limited nature of time encourages us to focus on what makes our heart sing.
