The Edge of Morning

Shadows sleep in silence; Trees bow their heads; Breezes slide through darkness; Stars whisper in cloudy beds; Waters ripple quietly; Vast Oceans to tiny streams; Mountains stand attention; Clouds move slowly, making dreams; Tiny blades of grass are born; Caressed by beads of dew; Awaiting morning sunlight; Enhanced by skies of blue; Rosebuds in infancy smile

As do daffodils; Oh… the edge of morning; what a sacred time it is.

  1. Thanks for reminding us of God’s glory shown on earth through so many different views from each window.

  2. Dot, David says in Psalm 19, “the Heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiwork.” I wrote along with that declaration, in a song….”Day after day and night after night, sun, moon and stars reveal His handiword; Night after night and day after day…the glory of the Lord, the glory of the Lord!”
    You lovingly express the ‘sacredness’ of God’s magnificent manifestation of a a Master Creator in the earth and throughout the universe.
    Thank you for your creative writing….you are following after your Father God, the Prime Creator.

  3. Gary taught this morning, a truth that I have read over and over and it never quite registered in my being as when he spoke that truth this morning. We are able to discern the seasons by looking at the creation. we admire His handiwork. We write and sing about His great creation. And so, too, we must prepare ourselves for the coming of the Lord by watching and waiting on Him…not just by looking at the “seasons” but by the signs of the things that are happening in the earth, in the world.
    This is the astounding truth …..1 Thess. says that Jesus will come as a thief in the night…BUT NOT TO THOSE WHO LOOK FOR HIM.

  4. Dot, in this poem it is as if you understand and share the love and care that God had for His creation when He made it and as He lovingly governs it.
    Your poem makes me think on this scripture:
    “Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life.” Psalm 42:7-8

    I love the photo too.

  5. I am so happy that you like my writings. Sara feel free to post any of my poetry that you feel is fit for the daily lily. I will keep writing as long as you want… : )

  6. Dot,
    Thanks for sharing your lovely poetry. Your words seem to just “paint the picture” you intended, for the reader. I really love the beautiful photo.

  7. Dot how beautiful is this poem. It reminds me of God’s love for us in that he shaped the world out of his hand so that the children He placed here could enjoy the beauty. Thank you for giving us an insight into those beauties he touches us with and he keeps them going from generation to generation.

  8. As at the end of this day I was reflecting on a verse of scripture from this morning from Psalm 92, “It is good to give thanks to the LORD, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, And Your faithfulness every night,” Dot’s poem came up to my mind for it is a poem of praise with each character in it doing just what the Psalm says.
