O Come, Thou Dayspring

I love the word dayspring.  Since we rarely use it, it has not become tethered to particular meanings.  
Definition 1: 
Definition 2:
Definition 3:

So many images
Come to mind:
Sudden water
In the desert,
Bursting light
On the horizon,
Long awaited,
Long hoped-for.
The crows caw outside,
Fly branch to branch;
The snow melts to prepare
For new snow
Over the weekend,
A promised white blanket
For the new Baby.
Dayspring comes
In so many forms
So many images.
Some water
Some snow
Some light
Some crows.
