Morning has spoken

Morning.  Blue circles under my eyes.  Black coffee.  Icy chill filling our concrete apartment.  One lamp on in the living room, casting light down over the NIV that I bought at Baker Book House back in college.  I read:

"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you..."  Psalm 143:8

I begin to pray, and as my soul gives way to conversation with G0D, the morning stars fizzle and give way to this:
Morning has spoken.
