dawn quotes

Gift


Tucked under a melancholic
moon I fell fast asleep, under
a blanket of evening stars that
silently hummed a lonesome
lullaby; my mind sought rest
atop a pillow damp with past.

Bravely I approached dawn,
escorted into wakefulness by
the most radiant sun eagerly
exposing daylight.

Profoundly content suspended
in her solitary, while immersed
bountifully in seraphic glory; I
am drawn from shallow slumber
into hope, consumed by earth
and all its majesty, as she begins
to orchestrate future harmonies.

Here in her presence I choose
to enter into day, humbled by
the gift that is morning.

L'arte sotto ogni sua forma, io li trovo semplicemente fantastici.

And then one student said that happiness is what happens when you go to bed on the hottest night of the summer, a night so hot you can’t even wear a tee-shirt and you sleep on top of the sheets instead of under them, although try to sleep is probably more accurate. And then at some point late, late, late at night, say just a bit before dawn, the heat finally breaks and the night turns into cool and when you briefly wake up, you notice that you’re almost chilly, and in your groggy, half-consciousness, you reach over and pull the sheet around you and just that flimsy sheet makes it warm enough and you drift back off into a deep sleep. And it’s that reaching, that gesture, that reflex we have to pull what’s warm - whether it’s something or someone - toward us, that feeling we get when we do that, that feeling of being sad in the world and ready for sleep, that’s happiness.

we were like gods at the dawning of the world

  • Chaol: Did you kill this man?
  • Celaena: No, a bullet killed him. Bullets are made of lead, which comes from the ground. The ground is part of nature. He died of natural causes. Case closed.
