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!

You invoke the sense of hope and happiness that we all look for. You tell us that though things may be bleak, there is a brighter, sunnier tomorrow coming. Down as we are now, we will be comforted.

Just what we all need now, Chris, the hope of better things to come.
Take care - Dave

I love that the loving thoughts in your poem extend to everyone else as much as to oneself. As we grow older & it gets harder to drag ourselves into a new day, people get self-absorbed in their misery. But looking beyond ourselves, seeing what challenges others face, is a sure way to cure whining! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
