A Dawn with You

A striking crack of dawn
At the parapet
Removing the murk within
One more day
Neat and beautiful
Brightening further
A different sort of stillness
In the garden
Soothing to my heart
Youth peeping outside
From tiny bud
Vitalizing the vibes
A softening music
Created by butterflies
Fuelling a desire
To relish
These rare moments with you!
