A New Path
the strobe of bright rays.
Yellow, orange warm-
energizing new life into every pore.
My eyes are shut
to its blinding glare,
But it still leaves behind
flashes of burnt red.
I am planted,
rooted to the ground.
Absorbing the life flow of it.
Bringing me back.
On new found ground I stretch,
erect reaching for it.
Feeling its warm love bathe over me;
healing renewal and peace….
I am ready for the journey-a new path, a new life!

I wrote this poem after watching the sunrise almost daily during the first year of my retirement. And sunlight was particularly healing to me this last year. Now I am feeling ready to move on, and what better time to declare that than around my birthday….pssst…it’s on Tuesday!
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
I am also linking in with the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday, and with Judith@Lavender Cottage who is hosting Mosaic Monday. And I was invited to link in with Macro Monday Mixer hosted by Stephanie@allthevs.com.

Special Note: These sunrises were an inspiration recently as I watch dawn break from my bedroom window.
I leave you with a few words about feeling reborn. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
