The sunlight
which strikes my eyes at dawn
bears its surprises.


Never the same
when it returns again –
on that I can depend.


Of course some days are dark
even when the night departs
and ushers in a dreary day.


I walk into the early mornings
amazed, sometimes
that I’m still here to gaze
upon this sky and earth.


It’s worth so much for me
to see our days begin
and though there are those
who do not welcome them
I recommend a dose of dawn.


Swallowed by a waiting heart
it might part a sea of darkness
and enable one to smile –
at least a little while.
