before sun rises
birds chirp outside my window
nature's alarm clock

One of my friends refers to dawn as "Bird Time". For me, it's my preferred Bed Time as well, and it's so lovely to listen to the birds as I fall asleep!

Oh, fun, and I love her reason for writing . . . therapy for chronic illness. Sounds almost mythic . . .
