Sweet Rising Day

Sweet Rising Day

A new day is rising

carrying with it the advent of Spring

the sky is spraying flakes of ice outside

the cold northern wind is blowing

and thick mists are swirling in the sky

yet the sun struggles

pushing the mists apart

lighting the earth with the light of hope


Today is not a day like any other

I woke up with ease and joy and sense of purpose

I’ve retrieved clarity within me

despite how muddled and foggy my journey is

I know how to sieve through the haze

and find the precious grains of moonstone I am looking for

and keep my spirit focused on the beauty I see around me, inside of me
