In the moment of dawn,
when the day is just emerging,
there is a hush

There is no one outside
No animals stirring
No cars going by

You can see the pinks and yellow
vivid colors in the sky
as they reveal the daylight

You can start to see the green 
of the trees and grass
and the bold colors of flowers

You can hear the sounds of the day
as it begins for people, birds, other creatures
and the cars begin to flow by

I prefer the hush of dawn,
but the sights and sounds of daytime
are just as beautiful and vibrant
