Perfect dawn…

sunrise in flagstaff2

I love to see a new day dawn.
Whatever went before is done and now is a new beginning.

Of course, given the fact I usually go to sleep in the early morning hours
I am rarely awake when dawn breaks.

The nights I can’t sleep at all I do see the dawn…
just before I nod off in exhaustion.

However, when I sleep “normal” hours
I awake to see the new day dawn.

  1. Yes, a new day, a new beginning. A gift. Sorry you don’t always sleep at night. But whenever you face the day – there is the opportunity to have a new beginning. Dawn is definitely a metaphor for rebirth.

    1. The insomnia is relatively new for me. Not sure why it is happening but I will be glad when we part ways…it is a pain in the butt to not be able to do something so simple as sleep.

  2. Witnessing the dawning of a new day is much like being told “It’s OK, now is your chance to get it right this time!” I am sorry you miss so many perhaps you could say that too as your day draws to a close!

  3. I haven’t watched the sun rise for a long time but it fills me with awe and I feel small.
    Sorry you can’t sleep sometimes but thanks for the reminder of a the wonders of a new day. The picture is stunning. 🙂

    1. The picture was taken by my friend when she was visiting Flagstaff AZ. I like seeing the dawning day…whenever I see it. I have never had insomnia before…I think it is an “old” thing.

  4. I love the beginning of a new day too, Patricia. God’s masterpiece in the sky fills me with such awe and reverence! When I was young I was always an early riser, up long before the others in the house. Now, I am sadly, always tired, and like you, tend to not sleep all that well at night, so I am inclined to opt instead for the snooze button… once or twice, or maybe thrice, and end up missing the magic quiet moments, as I scurry to head off to work. I tell myself that someday when I am old I will rise early, stay up late, and nap every afternoon! 🙂 Thank you for reminding me how much I love the dawn, next time I see it I will smile and think of you! I love the beautiful photo you chose for your post too, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us today at Two Shoes Tuesday!

    1. I have never been an early riser. That being said I am fine if I have to get up early. I am not grouchy or unpleasant. But left to my druthers I will sleep til noon. The photo “Sunrise in Flagstaff” was taken by my friend when she was vacationing there.
