Dawn Thoughts

Another day awakens
Promising warm winds
Sunny skies
Gentle events
to guide me through
the hectic times

I stretch, drawing in
energy to replenish
my weary soul
Revitalize desires
Strengthen interests
A healing balm

The day beckons me forth
into the primal dawn
Greeted by the early
call of morning birds
Filled with bounteous joy
I burst into expectant smile

The day is mine to conquer
I shall vanquish foes
Destroy doubts
Eliminate naysayers
Rise to the peak
Declare my victory

Ah, the dreams of a new day
fill my sights and
I rejoice.
