Dawn's Awakening

January 30, 2010

Night Made Day

Night Made Day


Night made day

By moon on snow.

Sleeping trees whisper

In their dreams.

Biting air keeps the animals

In their burrows.

Branch shadows glide across snow

With ease.


I look out with wonder

At the scene before me.

Magical it has become

After the mighty storm.

Nothing is as it was, and

The world is weighted down.

Only the wind can come and go

As it pleases.


What a blessing it is

To live in my mountain home!

God’s handiwork is so close

I can touch it with my own hands.

Indeed, I am made rich with the bounty

That is set right before me.

Nothing manmade can compare

With His Masterpiece.

  2. Dawn, the words in your new poem describe my front yard at this moment. It’s dark out, but the snow is keeping everything encased in a mysterious glow. The silence is deafening.

    Thanks for sharing. Keep on writing. Look forward to each and every poem.
