Aurora

146


The air is so still
Life seems held in stasis
In hushed anticipation
Of the day to come.

A soft pink streak
Hugs the horizon
One final embrace
Of the dawn
Before the moon
Hands the reins to the sun.

A few tentative birdcalls
Span the divide
Melting away
In the day’s mellow hues.

I take in a lungful
Of this life-giving breath
Charging my cells
For another day on Earth.

Thank you, Divine Mother
For the gifts you bestow
Not least among them,
The glorious dawn.
