Each day a new beginning ..........

I watched the sun spread its
liguid beginnings over the new day
And thought
thats it
Why do we awaken in moods
of yesterdays

When golden light itself so simply says
look a new beginning lies
smiling .... yesterdays awash
in a new color
a new glow
a new day

What kind of soul can remain
entwined in the
darkness
of night
And snared into and about the light
lie the new sounds

The owl speaks softly
and the raucus of ravens
one blue bird on a fence wire
Along with just a ghost of a
shadow whispering I will
leave you now
for a new beginning

Wow that was so beautiful. I read this twice because of how meaningful it is, and loved it just as much the second time.

A new beginning can happen anytime but we just gotta know when to halt and start over again!

Voted up and beautiful. Such wonderful poetic sentiments. Every day is a new beginning. Loved this and passing it on. Great pic. Made me think of Cat Stevens song Morning Has Broken.
