Early MORNING Serendity

It's summer with its incessant heat,
day after day of three digit temps
drains all energy and joy from me.

Then I discover early mornings,
rising long before the sun does
feeling the lingering coolness of night.

New awarenesses develop within,
as I pause to look and appreciate
the beauty of each day's arrival.

  This too shall seasons do,
but other days will bring new gifts
of color, coolness and promise.

A habit of gratitude can release
my frustration with minor irritations
as I understand the cycles of life.

These are really gorgeous skies! The price of summer heat, though....
