... time cast... Before the Dawn

the silent touch of the night
within depths of darkness be there light
cresting time within a celestial sea
quest of day an awakening to be
before the dawn held I within a vista vast
embraced by the dark the light eternal time cast.

  1. RoseMarie-
    beautiful image and heartfelt words to blend in to the detail of a moment just before dawn. Glorious as it eludes all reality.
    Love to you

  2. Dearest Gail,

    Thank You. Knowing that your sky light allows you to fully experience the night sky, I know you appreciate the fascination and appeal of these dark ever changing vistas.

    Much love,
    Rose Marie
