It's rare that I am up this early in the day.  I am a night owl by nature and struggle to wake up in the morning, yet this is my most favorite time of day. It's been pitch black for hours, but as the light begins to stream through the blinds on my window, I feel as if the world is awakening to the familiar sound of sunrise.  The hum of car engines.  The chirps of birds.  The noisy clamor of ended dreams and opened eyes.  The calm morning energy breaks the absolute peace of night and enthralls me with an excitement to start the day.

I'm likely to head to bed soon (as I've been up since yesterday), but I can't help but stay awake to see the sky fully risen.

I love the break of dawn.
