Suddenly the Dawn


Suddenly the Dawn

I must have set my sights upon
Enduring the winter nights,
Forgetting the natural turning
Of my orbiting home.

Did the earth cross some stellar threshold,
Or was that turning at work
Even in my darkness?
However it was that her course was plotted,
A new day arose
When suddenly the dawn
Cast her soft light in the early hours
Where darkness had heretofore been the expectation.

A turning of the season
Brings expectation of light.
