A Page Is Turned, Another Morn

A Page Is Turned, Another Morn

A Poem by Chris Shaw

from bleakest night comes brightest day
when rays of sun break through at dawn
when song birds stir the saddest hearts
a page is turned another morn

dear Gaia i am full of praise
for you who soothes each weary soul
for you who toils to ease where life
has left the spirit less than whole

inspire in all a sense of calm
apply with love your healing balm

“from bleakest night comes brightest day
when rays of sun break through at dawn”
Beautifully penned lines dearest Chris. Your words float upon the day as a graceful prayer to Gaia, an extolling of her comfort to man, each morning renewed. Great message, imagery, metaphor, rhyme, cadence, alliteration… Master Class write my friend!

Wow! I loved this write and the way it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside... It's a great poem with beautiful rhythm and cadence, wonderful use of metaphors and terrific rhyme schemes. I loved every line and sentiment. You proved that a love poem can be short, sweet and powerful. Well done, Chris. I can't wait to read more of your work... but right now, time to paint my house.

Rising with the new day many times gives a fresh perspective and allows the turmoil of yesterday subside

This is exactly the kind of poem I love and the title captured my attention right away! The description of day and night feels so fresh and what I often look for in poetry. The words are so healing and inspiring and I believe we could do with more poems like this.

The Greek Gods somehow make a poem more meaningful in my mind. Each dawn is an opportunity to have a good day...to change things that were not so good yesterday. As Annie sang, "tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya tomorrow...." we have to believe things will improve with the new day. So filled with hope. Very uplifting. I liked it. Lydi**

Dear Lydi**thank you for checking this little poem out. You are appreciated.

a sheer pleasure and delight to turn this page. a page of serenity, peace and healing. we could all use a book full of such pages and an unlimited supply of that balm. a new day is hope incarnate. i love the birds singing in the morning when the sun comes up. uplifting and well said. chris
