Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day

Cat Stevens

Good reasons to leave the warmth of one’s bed and brave the chill of mid Winter mornings are the magnificent displays of light and colour in the sky, constantly changing from the first hint of light until the sun is well above the horizon.
Taken at 6.57am on July 30 from my home at Batemans Bay on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia.

    an absolutely gorgeous morning! i’m horrible at getting up early (cause i stay up so late at night!) but this would definately be worth that early alarm!

  • Thanks so much Carla.
    I need no alarm, that’s one of the things about getting a little older … maybe I’m just not tired enough … or simply don’t need as much sleep as I used to.
