New Morning


I live for
the promise of a new morning
another chance to shine
as the sun rises
gently awakening me
I turn towards the sky
like a daisy opening up
hoping to change the world
one petal at a time


My poem is posted in response to the Sunday mini-challenge at The Imaginary Garden where Shay invites us to write about "what we live for." This is what came to me as I pondered about the miracle of each new morning and the possibility for change.

  2. Apro il mio computer e trovo un nuovo mattino.Parole così dolci e meravigliose...un petalo alla volta la bellezza di un fiore può salvare il mondo,Speranza da tenersi nel cuore ogni giorno....Buona domenica,cara amica e grazie per questo incipit di parole ed immagini di assoluta armonia !

  21. Beautifully said. Makes me wish I could be a morning person, but I'm genetically wired otherwise. My mother was a cheerful morning person, but I take after my father. I usually write in the late evening, sometimes after midnight until my computer tells me it has to go to sleep!
