Hello, sun in my face. Hello you who made the morning and spread it over the fields…Watch, now, how I start the day in happiness, in kindness. — Mary Oliver
I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning. — JB Priestley

Hello, sun in my face.

Hello, you who made the morning

and spread it over the fields

and into the faces of the tulips

and the nodding morning glories,

and into the windows of, even, the

miserable and the crotchety –

best preacher that ever was,

dear star, that just happens

to be where you are in the universe

to keep us from ever-darkness,

to ease us with warm touching,

to hold us in the great hands of light –

good morning, good morning, good morning.

Watch, now, how I start the day

in happiness, in kindness.

— "Why I Wake Early", by Mary Oliver
Do not say, “It is morning,” and dismiss it with a name of yesterday.
See it for the first time as a newborn child that has no name.
— Rabindranath Tagore

morning arrives in Antigua

morning arrives in Antigua

Wet with the morning dew
The tips of ten thousand grasses
All contain the light of day.
— A Capping Verse by John Daido Loori
from the True Dharma Eye, Case 199, Dongshan’s Essential Path

(via leokat1111)

When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food, and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies with yourself.

Tecumseh Shawnee Chief

The morning wind spreads its fresh smell.
We must get up and take that in,
that wind that lets us live.
Breathe, before it’s gone.
— Rumi
