Bright-sun Morning


Woke up to a bright-sun morning
Look what I see!
The day was a new dawn breaking
And I felt free – I was free!

I slept in a rumpled awning
I fell from grace
I fought with the demons clashing
But they were me, I can see

I am changing, I am changing
Ever changing, that’s for keeps
One thing we have in life is life
There’s no repeat

I got up to a clear sky cover
The air was new
I looked for my shadow’s lining
I remembered you

I wonder, can you see? See to me?
You came to me
What did we have?
Shall we see?

I stood on a high rock mountain
We all climbed there
So now you can know that you have me ever
I loved you there

And I ran from the scourge of darkness
It came to me
I thought I had conquered madness
It was fantasy

And once I held your soft hand
Like a dove in a nest hiding
Your fingers tapered and so small
You can hold hands and you can’t

I walked from the tough job’s ending
I washed my hands
And put on my fresh clothes, standing
Another day, I’d earned my stay

And I will sleep
I will sleep and wake up new
The sun hides its burning ember
I think of you, where are you?

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
