Dawn 2022

Today
rings the Sun’s doorbell
of Hope’s anniversary
when spirits last shook hands

so much time
in so little time
now a mane of snowfall
melt’d to a mist

fresh candles nudg’d from their beds
then lull’d back to their pillows
conceiving vapors of renew’d confidence

another boast
another test of the sinew
of that boast

another venture
into the mysterious forest of light
the memory of a sleepless eye
