Before Sunrise

All kin, we sleep in
The small emancipated kingdom
That is my own country; dawn finds
Them motionless but for the
Steady breathing, filling
Soundlessness;
Then daybreak:
Bark, bleat, birdsong
Signal their return to
Those other nations,
Air filled again with their
Mysteries.

Like the breaking of a fast, the breaking of day nourishes, as soundlessness
fills with sounds. How beautifully this poem breathes life into the day.

Not a single shade and color or, shadow and light wasted -- this is tonalism at its frameless finest.
