In that streaming suspension 
of the darkness of night
and moments before morning light 
rises over the horizon
there is a lingering fragrance 
pemeating the air
from the garden where.. 
love is preparing hearts 
to open to the warmth
of first rays of the sun..
the sky changes its cast from night
to a deeper blue
as the light peeks through..
a royal shawl is slipped around
 the shoulders
shielding the psyche
in loving concern…
the stars quivering with delight
begin to fade from sight..
suddenly the glow is alive
with a soft and gentle light.
