In This Stillness

In the stillness of the breaking dawn

With a book and morning brew

Sitting calmly within this silence

When everything starts new


The light and shadows dance

With gentle movements across the room

There’s peace here in this moment;

Another day for hope to bloom


In the newness of this day

I pause in gratitude

For all things great and small

With a thankful attitude


As the sun rises again

There’s another chance to see

All the special, wondrous blessings

That God prepared for me


Living in each moment

With an awareness of little joys

That’s what I’ll do on this day

Blocking out all the other noise


Every day with each new dawn

There are countless gifts around

To lift me up above the hard

With joyful moments to be found

    1. Thank you, Vickie. Rhyme isn’t as popular these days but that style seems to just flow out of me in a lyrical way so I go with it. I’m glad to hear you liked it. Love to you and your family!

      1. I can only do it when I’m not distracted by the noise of the world. I have a lot of alone time to reflect and write … a benefit of where my life is right now. Thank you, Judy 💕


    1. Thank you, Ruth. I notice the cross every time the sun shines through that window at this time of year. Blessings to you and Fred too!
