Pre-Dawn Trance

(Somewhere… the aves are hiding in those branches.)


Sleeps eludes me again

Lured to my balcony oasis

In this warming season

Here, sitting in pre-dawn darkness

I am at peace


Soon the serenade will begin

Hidden from sight

An orchestra of songbirds

Will entrance my senses

To my daily delight


Time stands still

Thoughts crumble

I am hypnotized

Until twilight reveals itself

And the sun radiates a new day

Songbirds fill the air

With symphony of voices

Hearkening new day

(Hills in the distance from my balcony.)


(Sun catches balcony railing.)

About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

    At least you are making the best of your insomnia. Just makes me miserable. Inspiring words, love the photos.

      You too. Noooo! I was miserable in the winter months. Thanks, V.J. By the way, I wanted to latch up with your challenge of speaking 30 minutes or more on a topic (internal dialogue on the poetic process ), but I couldn’t find the challenge anywhere, not even in your categories, so I changed the direction of this post. No worries. I still like the way it turned out. Also missed out on your “threes” last week because I didn’t get a link from doing “peripheral”. Just to let you know.

        Oh no! Things are not working properly…although, it could be my head. I’ll do some investigation.
        If I sleep well one night a week, I’m doing well. It’s so frustrating. I usually just lie in bed, not wanting to disturb my husband or the dogs. Cranky making stuff.

    I love the sunrise and the morning serenade. It’s unfortunate that insomnia brought you there. I bet you have seen some incredible storms from that balcony.

    Beautiful view! I too love the birds waking me. One of my favorite parts of spring. (K)
