The kiss of dawn with golden tinges
The door of morn on rosy hinges
A day birthed new~beckons me.
In silent awe I gaze on dawn light
Hoarding time in prayer to start right
Before the clamoring voices ~get wind of me.
Carpe Diem’s 2nd episode of the “Use that Quote” Challenge. The goal is to write a haiku, senryu, tanka or kyoka inspired on a given quote.
Today’s quote: “Forget not that the Earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair” ~~ Khalil Gibran
My Bare feet patter
Playfully scuffing the earth
Wind sifting through toes
Leaning in, washing,
soaping away the day,
I broodingly eye the sudsy water …
coil and swirl down the drain,
taking the grime of life with it.
Is that weariness I see clinging to the
basin edges? I wipe it clean, loosening it’s grip
before it finds me again, re-settling.
There is no such thing as an old sunset.
Each brilliant stroke paints new opportunity,
reflecting hope for another day,
another chance to make things better.
24 hours to make a difference.
Behold all things new.
