The Break of Day

The sun rises 
like a goldfish
slowly drifting 
up to the top

of her fishbowl
in search of food.
Darkness slips away
like a ship far out
 
on the horizon, 
sailing behind
the fluffy, 
white clouds.

Within minutes,
daylight has spoken,
and all of nature
is attentive

to her calling.
The flowers stretch
their petals up 
towards the sun

yawning with delight
as they soak
in her warmth. 
The trees 

reach out 
to touch her
and caress her
with their stately arms.

And I reach 
for my coffee
as I lounge 
in my chair

marveling at 
the beauty of it all.
This is the day
The Lord hath made.
