Directive for a New Day

When dawn unfolds before you like a silent rose
Awakens all your senses from a deep repose
Arise unshackled from capricious dreams
Step as you dare on stairs of golden sunbeams

Along the once black tunnels where you learned to breathe
Forget the darkest stars that taught you how to grieve
Float on the air like a magic golden leaf
Rejoice in the day because it is so brief

Now with leafy garlands woven in your hair
Dance lightly on mossy forest stairs
In your floating gown of clouds and sky
Happy and carefree as a butterfly 

When dawn unfolds before you like a dew kissed rose
Awakens your whole soul from deep repose
 Dance away the day because it is so brief
 Sigh at the stars that taught you to believe

    Life for billions is a daily struggle just to obtain the bare necessities, not to mention civil uprisings, ethnic cleansings, child abuse in all its various and sundry forms etc. So hard to imagine a brighter day for these, and, at times, even for us. Yet we must hang on to hope for a better, brighter day. I'm up for dancing a little jig today...

    Well done, Suzy, on a lovely piece, bright and vibrant, ideal for us poor sods enduring dull, short, November days. Viv x

    So nice to see your posting Suzanne... This is a beautiful poem, and I love that first line.. The rose is silent, beautiful and fragrant.. but it can prick you with its thorns... However, you poem is lovely, it rhymes and flows so well..
