How you siege light
shatter darkness
Have you never before
experienced the stealth of a sunrise?

Dewdrops deliquesce, drool
off lazy leaves
stretching at sunrise
melting moments of the morning

Each day the sun rises 
permitting you to measure time
what you call God’s mercy
is little more than
nature’s precision
and its self-sufficiency

So whether you frown
complain, or smile
the sun is going to rise
heedless of your whims

Why not be grateful
that you woke with the sun
yesterday went to sleep
tomorrow is yet to wake
be with what you have

  1. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for sharing this poem with us.

    The “stealth of a sunrise…” We like that a *lot*!

    The sun rising heedless of our whims is a huge lesson. Thank you for embedding it here.

    This is an amazing poetic creation.

    All good wishes,



    1. Dear Robert,

      I am pleased at the way this poem formed. I wrote the first verse more than 2 years ago. The second verse I wrote a few months ago. The last 3 verses I added just as I posted the poem. It actually shows me the different stages of my thoughts.



I would love to have your thoughts
