DAWN TWEETS 2015

Dawn cradles shadowsWith fables of sightAnd bathes silhouettesIn ladles of light

Each morning I make a dawn tweet. It’s been every day for some four years. In 2012 one tweet was made into a building There are two criteria. 1. It must be original 2. It must be less than 144 Characters 3. it must be dawn.
