At 5:30 the first song is heard.
Within two minutes a responding chorus begins.
Within five minutes single voices are no longer heard above the cacophony.
No light on the horizon.
Slowly he dark sky fades to gray.
The wind chime begins its daily chant.
Squirrels race up the maple tree.
Chattering as they scamper
From limb to limb and from tree to tree.
The aroma of coffee fills the air
The sun rises above the horizon
The new light shines in the windows
Time to explore.
Time to learn.
Time to begin again.
