New Day Thoughts

New Day Thoughts
New Day Thoughts

A gentle day follows,
a clean cut play of afferent pleasure,
clear skies, warm smiles
from heaven’s infinite gaze,
and clouds like evolving white blooms,
perfume the day’s begin,
and flourish all beneath that sun’s praise,
for all we are in life.

Autumn’s sway not yet drawn,
remnants of summer’s passing still echoes
like sweet memories gone,
yet felt in linger,
as life chatters, welcoming light
to play like birds soaring,
swooping for an insect bite,
on shimmering ponds and golden rays.

Light through windows break,
and cats all balled up in dreams affray,
just stretch as warmth envelopes,
blissfully whiling time away,
as day aspires to slowly climb the sky,
in its dutiful arc of times undoing,
and I stir to see with bleary eyes
the beauty of the morn, my dreams fading.

The curtains drawn,
unleash the day as light cascades
over every nook and cranny,
and eyes slowly accustomed open wide
to vision the treasure outside,
the grasses green with blackbirds feeding,
passing planes and cars in background humming
as I step into the new, uncertain hues.

Blessed are we in days like this,
warm and clean and everything crystal clear,
each step un-trodden, each fear released
to imbibe what promise the new day holds,
and so I step outside, upon the grass,
I feel the energy from earth,
the empowerment of my inert possibilities,
now to be no longer passive, but addressed.

    A beautiful awakening to a new day. I can almost hear the blackbirds chirping and feel the warmth of the rising sun, the power of the earth under feet. A glorious way to start the day. Lovely penning, Tony, sends out a sense of peace. Great work. Take care.
