I WAIT FOR THE NEW DAY

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

Each morning
I sit and watch
the Eastern horizon
start to glow 

with the tiniest
sliver of light
shimmering
at the edge of the earth 

as morning
slowly chases
the night
and the darkness
away
in an endless ritual 

insomniac
that I am,
I come to
watch and wait
for the sunlight
to dance
across my
window pane 

as it warms
my heart
and fills my soul
with the joy
and gratitude
I feel
at meeting
a brand new day
to love
and remember
