Whisper before the morning

It is the whisper before the morning

and I have captured the curl of a smile

caught with the taste of salt on my lips

and lingering for a while.

I have seen a long night of summer calm

come and go with the tide

sitting on the shingle here

my two dogs at my side

I have seen a fading azure sky

over in the east

and I have witnessed dawn’s full splendour,

a perfect visual feast

It is the whisper before the morning

and its fragrance is as new

it is a privilege to be here

bequeathed to very few
