In The Courtyard

by B-Miles Jackson

Tarry here in the morning,
The air fresh and clear,
Glistening green grass,
Kissed by the dew.
As the night gives way
To the sun rise,
Stay yourself,
Set your course for the day.
At dawning light,
When the calming stillness
Washes over you,
Let go of doubt - uncertainty.
Be renewed as the new day.
Birds softly singing in the distance,
Hills a shadow in the sun.
Tarry here but a moment more,
'til you can meet the challenges today.
Gain strength knowing
You're not alone.

In The Courtyard

Barbara B-Miles Jackson, born in 1948, grew up in Texas, studied poetry as a student in school. The poetry of other poets inspired me to go forward, changing myself when I could not change my situation. I one child and two grandchildren., Later needing a way of expression and focus, I turned to writing poems. Writing reminds me, we must travel through life situations with as much grace and dignity as possible., I started writing in 1995 for an Open Poetry Contest with National and International Library of Poetry.
