I love morning so much, and I figured, why not write a poem about it? Let me know if you have any ideas for revisions (I wrote this pretty quickly, so it's far from perfect).

from the deepest dark comes the greatest light,
a pink sunrise drowns the frozen world warmth,
transforming sky from black to cotton candy blue,
a symphony of birdsongs, morning’s sweet kiss
to draw apart my lagging eyelids, leave dreams
dancing in distant memory like old friends,
midnight thunderstorms must subside and yield
to our sun’s piercing rays, bending over the horizon
as a mother sweeps down to take her crying
child in her arms. midnight has so long plagued
mother earth’s fair face, now the sun returns to
her, banishes his foe, darkness, to distant lands,
for from midnight must come the morning.
