Sunrise Symphony

This morning, I heard the dawn break.
It wasn't at all loud or sharp like thunder.
It was, in fact, gentle and melodious,
building v..e..r..y s...l...o...w...l...y,
voice at
a time into
a natural sunrise symphony outside my window.

Because of the many buildings suffocating
the complex, I cannot see a natural horizon
in any direction from the claustrophobic box
which I call my apartment ...
but no matter.

This morning, I HEARD the dawn break!
