Daily Prompt :Staying in Focus: The Golden Hour

Daily Prompt: The Golden Hour

6:00AM: the best hour of the day, or too close to your 3:00AM bedtime?

The golden hour for me is that moment the sun reappears over the horizon in the morning. That slow spread of light, washing away the dark of night heralds the promise of a new day, as yet unwritten and unblemished, open to new possibilities and opportunities. The sun brings both light and warmth, awakens the birds to sing their greeting, and unveils the world, recently in shadow, now sparkling with morning dew. As the sun rises, it sends sunbeams dancing through my room. My golden hour is one of affirmation and resolve.  The doubts and failures of yesterday are forgotten in light of the promise of today.  As I am writing this, the sun has been battling the clouds this morning, and just now  it has found its way through, lighting my autumn dressed maple with its golden touch.

Every morning is golden, every day is a gift, a new beginning and an invitation to enjoy and celebrate all the special moments this day will bring.IMG_2432IMG_2431IMG_2435
