In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Golden Hour.”


The Golden Hour of sunrise is truly a magnificent sight to witness! Breathtaking, with its kaleidoscope of colors, spreading seductively, across the darkened skyscape, illuminating the entire horizon, bathing it, with luminous light, eradicating traces, from the earlier darkness.  All the while, the circular, glowing orb of sunlight, continues to rise among the mural of multicolored natural beauty.  The star, of nature’s daily, dance of grace.

Unfortunately, I am not much of an early riser myself. I abhor mornings! I would much rather be up late, to the early hours of the morning and sleep late. Although, once in a blue moon, my body just won’t let me sleep in the morning, or in some cases, it’s my cat, crying at my bedroom door, demanding that it be opened, in order for him to procure additional treats, or to obtain water from the sink, despite having his own full bowl downstairs.  Either way, he demands in! I can’t ignore a crying kitty at my bedroom door after all! 🙂 Needless to say, whether it’s my body refusing to stay asleep, or my cat at my door, I have been privileged to view quite a few sunrises.  Each one stunning, each one unique! Should you ever be awake at 5:30 AM,  be certain to grab a camera, or your Smartphone, and capture it’s exquisite beauty yourself!
