... Four in the Morning...

by Peter Hunter

four in the morning


gradually thin greyness oozing light

    like developing magic amazing the photographic darkroom

a gently leaking of sound the tuning of nature's instruments

    a stirring of lifeunhurried unfurling as it always has been

a time for reflection time for growing life


     the eight week kitten loose in my arms

squeals softly she feels it too wriggles lightly excitingly anticipating day

    my thoughts grateful I have another one

four in the morning one more emerging summer dawn
