born all over again 

the sun prepares quickly in the predawn
unable to stop perpetual motion from
slowly beginning to displace darkness
where fear and anxiety of unknowns
have held sway only now to yield
to hope and things born all over again.

poppies in their awakening
stretch to heaven along
with a dove and meadowlark
first, along with the misted low
from cows standing in ever-slight tule fog,
stir the absence of sound
all life new and void of yesterday

And so, with darkness leaving
and our grieving slowly passing
as the sun passes zenith
on to descent…
creation copies Creator
replicating what our Father
has done and will do
forever and ever in
love everlasting
