For the New Day

DSCF1142

The brimming heart of a new day
begins with a slow stirring within
 
A shaking off of nocturnal dreams
a deep, long stretch the body through
 
A feeling of joy for nascent things rising up
from toes to belly to the top of the head
 
And most of all, a wondrous belief
In what stays despite all the going
 
In the calm on the other side of tumult
In the ability of the self to just carry on
 
Which is to say, in the unwavering love
that is always flowing in both directions.
