Creation’s Dawn

The morning stars were resplendent as this new day unfolded.

Remembering that we all live in creation’s dawn is rejuvenating, exhilarating and liberating!  We can always start anew bringing our best and most creative selves to this newest dawn.

“…I also live in ‘creation’s dawn.’

The morning stars still sing together,

Night-Sky-2012-January-1038x576and the world,

not

yet half made,

becomes more

beautiful every day.”

-John Muir

Blue Sky, Tall Trees & Sun Burst

 

Morning has broken like the first morning, blackbird has spoken like the first bird.  Praise for the singing!  Praise for the morning!”        

     Morning Has Broken (Song Lyrics, Cat Stevens)

 

Every morning the world is created.  Under the orange sticks of the sun the heaped ashes of the night turn into leaves again and fasten themselves to the high branches—and the ponds appear like black cloth on which are painted islands of summer lilies.  If it is your nature to be happy you will swim away along the soft trails for hours, your imagination alighting everywhere.  And if your spirit carries within it the thorn that is heavier than lead—if it’s all you can do to keep on trudging—there is still somewhere deep within you a beast shouting that the earth is exactly what is wanted—each pond with its blazing lilies is a prayer heard and answered lavishly, every morning, whether or not you have ever dared to be happy, whether or not you have ever dared to pray.”

-Morning Poem, Mary Oliver
