Dawn Chorus 2022

Listen

Listen to the exhortation of the dawn…

.

 

Camas

…For it is life…

.

.

Dawn

…the very life of life…

.

.

dream

…for yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision.

.

.

Sunlight

And today well-lived makes yesterday a dream of happiness…

.

.

hope

and tomorrow a vision of hope.

.

.

Live

Look well therefore to this day; such is the salutation of the dawn.

.

This poem is attributed to the famous poet Kalisada, writing in Sanskrit nearly two thousand years ago!

.

The first Sunday in May is International Dawn Chorus Day…Vanilla and I went out before sunrise to listen to the glorious  birdsong – they were loud!  The day was not windy, so we wandered down to the rocky foreshore, where the camas was also glorious…the dawn poem felt very apt this morning!

    • We are so lucky to live here – the light and flowers were so lovely yesterday, and the birda all singing up the sun – a lovely way to begin the day and the month!

    • I think it is a robin’s egg – it’s the right colour and size! Vanilla thought so, and carried it home carefully and gave it to two humans in the family whose middle name is Robin!
