By Nicholas Hooper

Where is that word?
Where’s the idea?
What’s in my mind
Masking my fear?

No more the writer
Finding my flow
Lost in a silence
With nowhere to go.

Come to me words
From that stream that I found
Bring me ideas
That have gone underground.

Light of the moon and
Light of the sun
Find me creation
With day just begun.



About Dawnings:
“Every morning at around 5am I get up and go down to my studio. After a short meditation I write down whatever is in my head, giving myself fifteen minutes to do so. Then moving over to the piano, I improvise and record a piece of music inspired by whatever words I just wrote. It is a great way of keeping both my writing and my composing going and I call these small creations Dawnings. They are mostly unedited, like sketches, so that they keep that fresh feeling of an early morning discovery.”
