new life

Dawn of a New Day II

“Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted, and by degrees the forms and colours of things are restored to them, and we watch the dawn remaking the world in its antique pattern.” Oscar Wilde

The Picture of Dorian Gray
View from my front porch

The view through the semi-darkness

reveals the moon in the blue sky

as seen through

the ominous branches

of the tree void of leaves

in the eastern sky

the glorious dawn

heralds its presence

through a tease of light

a promise of color

the cycle of a new day

has begun.

Grief is like the tree

always in the background

the branches barren now

waiting for the new life of spring.

The sky can be shadowy dark

or filled with

sunshine, storms, or cold snow

depending on the season.

The moon is there in its cycle,

sometimes full sometimes not,

but always present as a guide

to show the way

through the darkness.

But the dawn-

the glorious dawn!

signals a new day

a new beginning

a renewed life

promises of things to come

beckons to awaken

shake off sleep

shake off grief

focus on color and promise

because as is the cycle of the earth

storms will come and go

but the moon will guide

through the night

and the dawn will always come.
