A Beauty-Day Early Spring,2017 - Poem by Daniel Brick

It's not as if I owned this day,
its beauty across the Twin Cities
burnishing people and places
with the gold of time glowing
between here and eternity. We all
borrowed a portion of our joy today
which puts all of us in debt
to the deep source that lies
beneath beauty and lends its truth.
But this debt is no extravagance:
it is more bond, than obligation,
a way to link all material things
into a wholeness, a spiritual heritage
in our endeavor to become higher beings.

    Alright, Daniel.

    So I started reading your work, and I picked this one first because the title (and some of the ideas as it turned out) reminded me of my recent poem, Semi-retired in Early Spring.

    In your poem I relate to and like the recgnition of how the natural world can lift and restore us- a theme I return to again and again in my work. In its feeling I'm reminded of a Wordsworth sonnet, Upon Westminster Bridge (?) .

    On the effects of light you mention, I think of poem, Just 15th Street.

    On to another poem,
