She rises in the soft of a lighted morning
beside calm waters cracked open with the orb
rising into the waiting sky,
the birth of another beautiful day.
We linger watching
fingers reaching out to trace
the slow and steady movement
earths heartbeat moves in waves
feet cool on shells and sand
stretching into the air the inhalation
of beauty held quietly
exhaled in peace and being.
Images captured in the mind’s eye
taken back to sit and contemplate
over coffee and the scent of warm bread,
yellow yolk wiggles like a small round belly,
spices of life added
and the sounds of birds beyond the wall
sing to her of a new day that waits
for her steps to move forward
beyond the scope of her dreams.
