as dawn breaks
as dawn breaks over fields of greenwaving like the tide of an over-active seaI'm taken aback by a feeling of immense inadaquceythat grows ever larger as I peer out across a seemingly endless terrainwatching it fade into the horizon of a gloriously colored sky.the clouds hover, changing from white to brillant redto violet then back to white once more.the awe inspiring beauty of the moment steals my breath awayand I find myself lost, deep inside of thoughts primortal.how truly small and insignifigant we all arecompared to the blood red sun that risesagainst the back drop of blue craddling it in loving arms.my problems suddenly seem tiny in comparisonas they float away with the gentle breeze.I sit watching, mesmerized by the sun crossing the heavens.how long I sat there, I couldn't sayonly when first I rested here the sun was smalland far away, but now it is large, hanging high overhead.it's rays warming the chill that settled in my bones long ago.it's quiet here.there are no sounds of traffic,no sirens splitting the day like a migraine,no houses,no people for miles,only a patchwork of greens and yellowsand the aroma of earth and growing things,of life.and I think to myself,
man, I needed this
I breathe deeply, inhaling all these things I had forgotten.the serenity of the moment washes over meas time itself seems to hesitate,not wanting to interupt the tranquillity.I exhale, the weight of these long, long years fall awaylike a gentle rain on a spring daysoaking back into the land from were all things cameand I smile an easy smilethat my lips have not known since I was but a child........
