New Days

New Days

A Poem by LauraKate

How lucky I must be

To raise my blinds and see

That Jack Frost has been to play

And I wake to a crystalline day 

What a blessing it is to think

That with every morning’s first blink 

Doorways to darkness swing open

And constrictions of night may be broken 

No limits to hinder my gaze

Skies turn at the brink of new days

And I turn with you on my head 

'til it rests on a sinking bed 

Say ‘goodnight’ to the stars above

Asking them when I’ll find true love

Come rain, shine or snow

May I wake again tomorrow

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.

each day is a possibility....for many things...i am one who definitely looks for the positive...and just that i wake up each day, i count that as a blessing in itself.

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.
