The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you; Don't go back to sleep.
Rumi

this thought is so beautiful. and true. early morning, sleepy mornings, seem to have this thing of half dream half reality when thoughts flow freely.

Yes, i was amazed when i discovered the beautiful poetry of Rumi (Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi). He was a 13th-century Persian poet, and his poetry sounds so real and modern even today.
I agree with you, there is something special in the dreamy magic of early mornings, and we should let the breeze of dawn blow into our sails, to inspire us for a miracle of a new day. There's a quote by Rabindranath Tagore:
"Do not say, 'It is morning,' and dismiss it with a name of yesterday. See it for the first time as a newborn child that has no name."

Hi Thinker,
I have "tagged" you, which is an invitation to reveal 7 things about yourself. Knowing that you are quite the secret man (i don't wake up early enough to catch the breeze's secrets), I won't be hurt if you don't do it! :)
have a nice week

Cécile, i'll write down 7 things about myself in my next post.

I do so enjoy the words of Rumi. Dawn is a very special time for me, either walking the dog or getting ready to carve in the courtyard. Breathing in that first breath of fresh morning air is so invigorating.

I also enjoy carving in the courtyard, fresh air and the sun, there's nothing as pleasant as that!
