Light Of Day

by Barbara Miles Jackson

Early I wake before dawn,
To see the new day.
First the quite stillness,
Make me feel safe,
The sun rise help me began.

The morning routine,
Keeps me moving.
A cup of coffee,
Warm and strong,
Grateful for each new hour.

Different clothing,
A new tablet,
With nothing on it.
A new agenda,
Give me a new start.

The errors of yesterday,
A distant memory,
But clearly a new beginning.
Taking refuge in the dawn,
I wall through the door.

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.
