David Profitt
Thus Breaks the Dawn

Thus breaks the dawn
with fog and mist and
the shadows of trees with spider branches
not yet turned green by summer.
There is a peace at dawn
that burns away quickly;
like the fog, it rises
Like the mist of the morning
it blows away.
Nature rouses herself.
God wakes His creation.
The world bears down.
The moment is gone.
But in the solitude at the dawning of the day,
stillness and silence reign
and with them comes peace.

David Profitt, retired from 35 years of service in the pastoral ministry, has taught Philosophy and Religion at Big Sandy since 2004. He has written poetry and essays for over 40 years. He and his wife Darlene have four children.
