I rose before dawn
to see what life
had in store for the day
 
Silence greeted my eyes
as the night faded gently
and I walked among the trees
of my thoughts
unfiltered by the noise of my desires
 
I saw the mist rising from the river
against the slowly eroding cliffs
as the soft light of the sun
crept up on the river bank
 
From the mist they appeared
silently floating over the water
testing their footing at each step
on the way to the far shore

I breath this moment in the song that never completes its rhyme, that never repeats its rhythm and always strives towards a harmony heard on distant days with a melody that follows the breeze through the whispering aspen leaves.
