And a good morning
to all of you early risers.

I awoke at about 5 a.m.
and went outside
into a cold coastal fog
which was pretty thick.

It was so peaceful outside
that I decided to write another "quiet"
(or should I say "quiescent"?)

As the first light of day
began to come over the horizon
to the east of me
I watched the ocean to the west,
directly outside my window.

This was taking place
between 5:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.

It is now 7:30 a.m..

Hope you enjoy.

The idea of this song
is just to enjoy some peacefulness
for a few minutes
with a little bit of introspection
and a few
(lots, actually)
tragic overtones.

Hope you enjoy.

And hope everyone has a good and productive day.
