One of the most suggestive moments in my life is the birth of the day. I’m not referring to the sunrise exactly, but that odd moment between first light and its presence in the world …
I’m not sure if everyone sees this moment the way I do, as a particularly mysterious moment. I’ve heard it referred to as the breaking of dawn or breaking day. This is the moment that seems to me where the day is at its potential glory … and spiritually one can imagine this as the feeling one might have before the full light of illumination is manifest!
In any case, the other morning I was up and about rather early a I had an appointment in Rovereto. My friend had decided to come with me, so I passed by her house to pick her up. I was a little early so I took out my trusty Olympus and took a few shots. This is the one I chose for today:
If you’d like to participate, but are inspired by something different – that’s fine by me – once you’ve completed your haiga just tag your post Bastet’s One Month of Haiga and link directly to this post, then link your haiga post in the Mr. Linky app hidden in my flowers below so others can easily find you:
Have a great day! Bastet!

i like that haiku a lot. the image too of course. yeah, early morning is spectacular. fun on. aloha.
Thanks — you’re right fun on!
perfect way to view the new day
‘crack of dawn’ does’t quite do it – implies that one would have preferred to stay in bed 😉
‘dawning’ is definitely the most poetic.
I always like silhouetted trees.
I love working with shadows and silhouetted trees are fantastic – I’m glad you agree with dawning …
