a cloak of sunlight

by A. Paige White

An unrealized alarm broke the night
five pieces past a darkened axis that taxes
a clock's mind seeking for the dawning
is it time?

Waiting but not counting
on a keypad fingers fly
and when the writer looks up
dayspring has exploded the sky
is it time?

Birdsongs write upon the breeze
a winter's chime:

lighting upon a listening ear

It is time
to sing
"Don't forget to take the joy that's in the trouble!"

No cloak of mourning for me!


Author's Note: Seeking an infusion of purity and strength by a magnification of Sonlight... so goes the morning... Bright!
