A New Day


A New Day

I opened my eyes to a new day dawning

the sun was rising, the earth was yawning

I looked to the horizon, the foot prints of the day

were brush stroked across the sky as if to say

This day is different than any others

that have come before 

because jesus was knocking, and this time

you opened up the door

you did not turn or run away

or make excuses for mistakes you have made

instead you invited jesus in

accepting him as your savior

to begin again

this time as a child of God

washed clean of sins, removed from the fog

for the veil has been lifted from off your eyes

finally you can be free

you can realize

that God has been there all along

the holy spirit filling you

you move forward now renewed

to live a life that was promised you

when God sent his son to die for you.

i love the combination of nature and spirituality here in your poem..especially love the line: the sun was rising, the earth was yawning...so vivid and clear in my mind's eye...



Thank you. I love your poems.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.
