new day

new day

walk outside
breathe in
the cool
the fresh
the brand new morn
what will this day bring?
promise this—
be carried by
the wing of love
see it all
and sail above
coast on eddies
with the breeze
beneath your wings
or like the earthworm
who eats and aerates
soil, make spacious
wherever you go
enlarge your life
and mine

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—not final versions.

    I LOVE this! – create spaciousness! “make spacious wherever you go” like an aerating earthworm!

    Happy Thanksgiving! XOXO, Rabia
