brand-new day… by Toni Cross


this morning air

draws across the fresh canvas

of my newly awakened soul

with pastel green creating grass


anything can happen now

and I could even fly

broad brisk strokes of charcoal

against the empty sky


spilling golden from

the smile of a child

now the sunshine rules

the heaven-space


all cannot be bright

but pain has a beauty of its own

bumps and bruises

dot watercolor flowers

among the weedy meadow

and another day goes by

perfectly imperfect and wonderful
