      The white town was drowsing in the sunshine of a summer's morning. As noun absolutes go, this one is very simple. "Drowsing" is a gerundive that modifies "town." Since "town" itself does not have a syntactic function (It is not a subject of a finite verb, or any type of complement.), this makes "town drowsing" the core of a noun absolute phrase.
