Against the Dawn

Upon waking the birds sang

a light chirp and consistent rhythm

cracking life against the dawn

But then a distant siren approached

becoming louder

and silencing the sweet sound of


Rescuing a fading life

And when it passed there was no sound

at all

Except the chattering of a wondering  mind
