Gratitude For A New Day
The dawn breaks slow
a warming glow,
across the horizon
rising soft and low.
A peace settles down
on everything surrounds,
waking my soul
with the sweetest sounds.
And my grateful heart knows
as love overflows,
a day being born of

I wrote this poem as part of a challenge to create a gratitude prayer. I had forgotten about this poem until I recently found it tucked inside some papers I was going through as I cleared mounds of clutter that had accumulated for 10 years.
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.
If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs.
Special Note: The sunrise photos pictured in this post, came from a recent sunrise this winter. They show the progression of the sunrise, starting with the small circle on the left and going in a clockwise direction. This beauty of this sunrise lasted 15 minutes.
The first picture is a view from my porch looking past the rain chain, which hangs from the porch roof, into the colors of this new day.
I leave you with a few words of the gratitude prayer for this new day. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
