whatever the morning version of "the gloaming" is...

i'm sure there's a word for it, but i don't know what it is. in the evening, when the world looks like this, it's called "the gloaming." it's not evening - at least not here. but this is my favorite time of day - i think it always has been. it's my favorite time of year to be awake at this time of the day, too. there's just something about this early hour, just before the sun comes up, especially when there's snow on the ground, when everything is tinted the deepest shades of blue... anything could happen when the world looks like this. star-crossed lovers could reunite. fairy godmothers could exist. it's magical, this moment just before daylight. more so than ever on a day like today, when there's a light snow falling, and the world all around is hushed. anything could happen... and it's not even Wednesday... ;)

"gloam" is the word from the crossword puzzle that we couldn't figure out! so we made up the word g'voam instead. :)

What a lovely description. I stumbled here by accident, trying to figure out what word would refer to the morning time that corresponded to the gloaming. Sounds like you don't know that word, either, but you plainly know the new-morning glow that I'm trying to describe. Thank you for sharing those beautiful words.
