A Day of Becoming

glittering stars fade, signaling
for the dawn to awaken
the sun breathes life into the day
cresting over the horizon
birds sing a song of rejuvenation
as the sun reaches its mighty culmination

through nature’s metamorphosis,
she simply sits
allowing the breath of life to
reach within and permeate her soul
the warmth of the sun draping across her
body like a satin dress caressing her skin

she cannot help but stand and rejoice
in the beauty of this new day and
reaches her hands to the sky,
feeling the silky rays of sun encircling
her from head to toe, flaring at her feet
like her dancer’s dress,
as she spins around in joyfulness

she turns, and walks back inside
now ready to face the day,
no matter what the fates might bring
a brand new dawn, a brand new day.
life anew, its possibilities as endless
as the stars in the nighttime sky,
who sing her gently to sleep at night

single notes of music begins to play
droplets of water splashing into her heart
a note grows into song, an open faucet,
pouring, filling a once empty pond
a song flourishes into a majestic symphony
an absolute crescendo,
reflections of light on water,
as she rides its waves, soaring to bold
and adventurous new heights

waterfalls of love showering, now
overflowing, as its rivers run mightily
through her, a dance choreographed
by the simple beating of her heart
carrying love’s waters through her,
over her, around her.

immersing in love’s breath
until they are one,
a transformation fashioned
by life’s songs
melting into the waters of love
as she becomes whole

in the span of a single moment
she is one with love –
she has become love
