The Heavens’ Secret

A new day welcomes me

Masked as dark and gloomy

Beginnings stalk between the trees

I think the weather’s moody

A light mist touches my cheek

And fear strokes my heart

As the sun prepares it’s entrance

As the clouds assemble their art

Wisdom dawns on me

As pivotal as the sun

What I fear is a gift from God

Signaling change is to come

So as I awake beckoning new

As I drape my hand through Earth’s sweat

I realized that time was hard at work

Working to make sure I never forget

Forget what lies ahead

As the Earth transitions between night and day

Time wanted to make sure I always remembered

That joy etched itself into what was dark and gray

So…this morning, I no longer fear

The sweet mist outside my window

I now know the heavens’ secret

I have the inside info.

  1. I really like this! These are my favorite lines:
    As I drape my hand through Earth’s sweat
    and
    That joy etched itself into what was dark and gray
    I also liked how you ended one line with a word and used that same word to start the next line.
