Daylights Break

Light from the sky
Warming my face
As I step out of the shadow
At daylights first break
The glisten on the water
Of a distant stream
Vibrant with beauty
Just like a marvelous dream
I step out into the open
And walk towards the light
Put both feet into the water
To see a miraculous site
A school of fish
Swimming past my feet
A luminous shimmer off of scales
A wonderful defeat
My worries had left
My pain subsided
And the balance within
Had equally divided
When day turned to night
Is when my adventured had ended
When daylights next break
Can I wander again

    There does seem to be something miraculous about the way fish live such a peaceful life. You wrote this so beautifully that I felt as if I were stepping into the water with you. Very nice! Love, Carolyn
