The Breeze at Dawn


The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.

"where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open."

those 2 lines are indescribably beautiful to me, as some sort of gateway to God is how they feel to me

something about sunrise seems to resonate, as "more range" also made reference to sunrise

dawn's embrace must be the link
