New Days

New Days

A Poem by LouBelle

How lucky I feel that I must be

to raise my sleeping blinds and see

Jack Frost has danced the night away;

so I wake to a glistening, crystalline day. 


What a blessing it is to think, that

with the flutter of day's first blink 

doorways to darkness enslaved swing open

so eternal constrictions of night may be broken. 


Limits may no longer hinder my gaze

skies they turn at the brink of new days

and I look to them 'till my restless head 

finds fresh crisp pillows on a sinking bed 


Wishing ‘goodnight’ to the stars above

asking them if I’ll find true love

come rain, come fog, come shine or snow

may I wake again to a bright tomorrow.

This is a sad poem, in that you are unable to see the "The doors of darkness enslaved swing open"; but there is hope in this poem, hope for love and dreams. Lovely words to describe the scene.

My pleasure. Loved reading it!
The best writing shows the contrasts of life & here you've done that vividly. Love the first part where everything felt shiny & new, great rhyme & rhythm & enthusiasm. Then we get to that turn in the weather toward the end & this twist feel wistful & realistic . . . the thought of being alone can often be the chaser for every other thought, for some people who hate being alone (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I am a hardcore loner myself, so I understand! *smile*
Wonderful words shared dear LauraKate.
"Say ‘goodnight’ to the stars above
Asking them when I’ll find true love
Come rain, shine or snow
May I wake again tomorrow "
I like the above lines. My prayers also. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

I get the feeling here of a darkness being lifted. Like seeing again after a heavy mist. Once you have come through a dark tunnel, each new day gives opportunity. You don't know what lies ahead and what better than viewing the finery of a magical frost to get you started. It's great to have that feeling, that you are lucky to be alive. Nicely penned LauraKate.
