Lever du Soleil

Author:

There is something extra in the ordinary of every single day...we just have to look for it.

Lever du Soleil

It’s beautiful

It’s like birth

Except there’s not pain

And it’ll happen tomorrow again

So that’s different, too

But life is starting anew

It’s like a key turn

Then the motor hums

A chorus thrums

Small bird chirps

Raven caws

Quail yells “chi-ca-go, chi-ca-go”

Rooster starts to crow

You can smell the coffee

And hear it tinkling

As it makes its way

Out of the bottom

Of the filter

And into the bottom

Of the decanter

It’s like a banter

That happens each day

At this time

Or somewhere thereabouts

Within a few minutes, anyway

And then there’s this:

Sunrise on 27 October 2020, Moscow, Idaho, USA

Sunrise on 27 October 2020, Moscow, Idaho, USA

And it’s like bliss

Like a first adolescent kiss

That’s meaningful

Heavily anticipated

How long you’ve waited

And it didn’t disappoint

Except inasmuch

As you worry

It might end

And this one will

For sure

But not to fret

Not yet

Tomorrow is another day

And it’ll happen again

And it’ll be beautiful

It’ll be like birth

And we’ll name it
