It's 5 o'clock somewhere...................
Well it is here anyway - as in " Morning has Broken " 5 o'clock
The street lamps are still on
No one is on the street
The park beyond is empty
I've just made a cup of tea - and sat down for some computer time - you know - replying to emails - visiting
writing up a new post - but my eyes keep wandering to the window
and I realize just how much I love this time of day
before the hustle and bustle of the city filters in
before the Sun bursts through the sky and urges us all forward with our busy hectic mad paced lives.
before vitamin C and caffeine push us through the door.
It feels like I have a secret -
It feels peaceful -
It feels like " my " time -
I know the sun is there - just beyond the trees - it's stirring - yawning - getting ready to rise
but I want to tell it to turn over and go back to sleep
for just a little longer................
and then it hits me - smack in the face - these moments are so special to me only because they DO last for so short a time.
like so much in life - we tend to strive towards the bigger picture - the day we had - the night we had
the week we had - the year we had
I don't think I've ever had a conversation with anyone - that started with
" oh what a beautiful moment I had today "
by the time this post is finished - that wondrous view will be gone
joggers will have started their routine at the park - early dog walkers will be up and about -
squirrels will be chasing each other up the trees - cats will be making their way home from their
night shift and the birds will begin their morning song........
and I will forget about this - until the next time.
we all forget about them - those spectacular moments that make up the whole.
Moments like 5 o'clock in the morning -
a cup of tea -
and a window...............................
Out of the mayhem of your day
I hope you find yours
of course, a glass of wine at twilight can be pretty awesome too!
