Yesterday, I rose before the break of dawn
When the cloak of darkness invites you in
With the lure to wander.
Sleepy-eyed and shaky, I got my bearings
My feet at the ready as I stepped through familiar stillness
Sleek as a cat, soft as the dew.
Times such as this, I feel content
I know where I am, eager to discover
What little event gave me cause to rise
I followed my feet to find a surprise
Behind white lace, I drew it aside.
There it was ...
Amid the dark blue sky, shiny and bright
Prominently placed in direct eyesight.
A silent message of faith and love from a radiant star
Hung high in solitude though not alone
Among the others its brilliance shone.
