A New Day
Morning dawns across the heavens
As the bright sun claims supremacy once again
Conquered now, the stars are take cover
Behind the mantle of dawn’s delight
Like chastised children hiding from Mother’s reproaching frown.
Darkness retreats, now defeated
Its departure a victory o’er the night
Silently the slumbering new day wakens
Its course as yet uncharted – insecure
But potential beckons – buoyant, optimistic
To dream of ventures, aspirations
That defy the scrutiny borne of fear
Presenting bravado like a dare
Yet treading stealthily lest they overstep their bounds.
