A New Day

Streetlight shadows, sentinals of the night
Give up their posts
Secrets safe

Crescent Moon, Venus in tow
Sighs its last breath
Waning on the horizon

Newspapers flop at doors, car exhaust
Once more bubbles
 In the sunrise

Thoughts of commerce, or lack of it
Fill heads with coffee

Below the bridge, alongside the river
Ducks push out a few feet
Stirred by the homeless
Searching for firewood

Lights flicker in tall buildings
Hoping this will be the day

My thoughts turn to rhubarb pie
In season now

    Great expression of a city, after a late night out into the morning, how it vibrates with living energy always, even in the shadows perhaps more; and the rhubarb pie a delight! Love it!

    All the collective little things that make for a beautiful morning. I loved the way you wrote this, James ... but now I'm hungry for rhubarb pie and sad that i don't have any.

    It's amazing how the small details bring a piece to life. This is very well expressed Jim.

    Such the simplicity of pie, it gives a moment of peace in a rough world. Enjoy!
