new day

WHEN THE MORNING COMES ALIVE

There is a wonderful phenomenon in the mountains beginning around five

It’s when the evening is retreating and the morning comes alive.

 

You wake up to the darkness and a stillness in the air

Then gradually there are things around of which you are aware.

 

Gently, almost imperceptibly the nightfall begins to shift  

As the ebony blanket of evening slowly starts to lift.

 

Yes, out of the evening’s remnants the morning begins to peek

And from somewhere in the darkness the first bird begins to speak.

 

She is quickly followed by another, then another sings her song

Until the mountain is a symphony of birds harmoniously singing along.

 

With the lifting of night’s blanket the day can now expand

And you stand in awe as the sunlight glides across the land.

 

Then before you know it all around you everything is bright

And you marvel at how right before your eyes the day replaced the night.

 

You feel lucky to be a witness watching a brand new day arrive

 

And blessed to experience the wonder, when the morning comes alive.

Morning

 

 

                     

Morning, the dawn of a fresh beginning.

  When sunrise gives life to a beautiful new day

              that seems never ending.

 

Morning, when yesterday and days before

  become recollections of unchangeable memory's.

 

Morning, a moment in time to remind ourselves

  not to re-live life but rather to live life.

 

Morning, when tomorrows yet to come

  build anticipation of events not yet conceived.

 

Morning, with mind refreshed I can evaluate

and choose to continue or change that which lay ahead of me.

 

I will always believe the most cherished part of the day

           is and will always be....Morning

             

 

  

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

My wife was having a bad day at work. Her job is very stressful anyway. I told her to let it go for the night and re-think it in the Morning. It's amazing how thoughts and opinions can sometimes change or become more clear if we just step back, relax, and start refreshed in the Morning.

Hominid Quest

Crossing the boundaries
Imposed by human thoughts,
Outstretched in infinity,
Yet at one with nothing,
One single desire,
One single motive,
One single spark
Holds by be-ing,
And gathers the light of the aeons,
My body left in a cocoon
Of luminosity beneath this astral place,
Unseen through waking eyes,
But sensed through the cords of space,
Extending out to touch the face of gods,
A mortal soul returned to Earth,
I awaken through this never-ending goal,
As another day is birthed.

A NEW HORIZON

Folder: 
LOVE KNOTS

Yesterday

something
happened
causing me
to look
away.

far in the
distance
I heard a
new
song.

as I grew
near
Unfamiliar
music
kept  

calling
my name.

enticing me,
come
and enjoy,
a face  
imaged
my
mirror.

just over
the
mountain

a new horizon
burst forth
a new day
dawned.
