DAYBREAK: Poetry by Damon Whitsell



DAYBREAK

Fading stars surrender to a soft glow on the horizon
The hazy moon is slowly drawn to the place it will sleep in
The nocturnal world is about to become a morning fire dayglow
The creatures of the night hurry to find a safe place where they can go
A beautiful kind of light seems to fall from this freshly painted sky
All the flowers stand at attention to grasp some light and sigh
Many of the creature eagerly come out to honor the sun that shines
They roll around and play awhile but not enough they get behind
Instinctually they go about the things that are required for life
The whole of nature comes lovingly to enjoy this daybreak of life
The fog lifts the dew off the soggy terrain only to disipate and lose its mass
The wild flowers are relieved and awaken from the sleep the night had cast
Everything joyfully thanks this thing they love that gives them energy
Insightfully I know that this is not the force that gives light to me
Somehow I mysticly posses a way to change this light in subtle ways
I stand above the creatures who enjoy this light but can not alter its rays
Todays daybreak enlightens in a very peculiar and special way
I dream and invision this life to be more than the morning sunray
A sense of everything takes hold as the orange glow fades to blue sky
In this light I can see that something is so much greatly more than iI
With one small fleeting gaze I can see the totality of all reality
Something somewhere really is the source of this sunlit sky and me
I sense that it holds a very special feeling for me but I’m not sure why
Today I gleefully looked straight up into this most very unique sky
Never before had I seen so much of life or so wonderfully high
There was an image that filled the span of this marvelous sky
Momentarily I thought it appeared to be an image that looked like me
Then I was awed realizing that this was god, creator of the universe and me
Then suddenly a serene voice whispered from the sky and said to me
” I am your father and I have heard you speak of me and long for eternity
As today breaks I want to tell you and show you all that you mean to me
I live for you, I died for you, our pain is over, today is your daybreak to
Eternity”
