Walking to Daylight

At morning, walking in total darkness

Filling a world with a silent quietness

A full moon illuminates the crystal clear sky

Brightening a walker’s thoughts, time flies

The frigid, morning air washes across a face

Sending a wintry breath filled with cold taste

A layer of garments safeguards from the chill

Walking for an hour awakens a sluggish will

An early, morning walk isn’t for the weak of heart

Feeling somewhat better now after a dismal start

A series of shadows dance around a home

Making a soul feel remote and quite alone

All eyes must stay alert on the sidewalk

Signaling when an uneven surface stalks

The mood is set for a moving conversation

Hearing God’s Biblical word brings sensation

A mindful heart beckons to come through

Creating an intimacy with a Lord so true

The walk’s pace continues to march right along

Allowing this rendezvous with time that’s long

The eastern sky begins to brighten with light

Bringing an end soon to this walk of delight

Another early morning walk will come again

Walking to daylight with Christ as my friend


Do you look forward to early morning walks?  If so, what do you like most about such an activity?

  2. This is so beautiful. Each time I read one of your poems on early morning walks it takes me right back there. I haven’t done one for a long time, but I love the quietness, the stillness of the day. Every thing is fresh. I love to see the dew on the leaves and the flowers and listen to birds as they sing or spar with each other.

  3. Wonderful poem! I love early morning walks too, so nice and quiet except for the birds singing. I used to live in the country so early morning was especially nice, but even here in town it’s still the best time of day. Have a great day!
