New Dawn Rising

Photo taken @ 5:15 AM on August 25th 2012-
the day after my birthday during a morning walk.
Narragansett Beach/Narrow River
I’ve been wondering as of late
about destiny, life and fate
How things don’t always turn out
or amount
to what we thought they would, could or should
be
a mystery
beyond me
I never thought I would be
some of the things I have been
Surprising for me to see what, how and when
Ironies, 
well beyond me
I never dreamed I would see
painted dreams
from within my head
portraits of reality
landscapes of my mind
hidden canvas
unseen
but to One
who sees all
magnificent,
brilliant,
bursting with beauty 
slow reveal
like the dawn
rising slow
horizon glow
sunbeams reaching 
beyond
touching all with radiance
gently awakening love
nudging forth grace 
right here
now
in this place
and love comes for me
and for you
with every new dawn rising…

arise 
to love’s embrace.

Linking at the Pub (doors open in the afternoon)
– with something fresh from the heart.

    life takes us along strange paths sometimes…always the unexpected in store which is good sometimes and sometimes frightening..i like when we can look at that pattern and in hindsight it makes sense…

    with every new dawn rising…as surprising as it is to use where we end up it is not to him…seeing the whole tapestry laid out…which makes each new dawn all the more…what surprises he has in store for us you know…smiles…

    Such inspired verse, Dawn. And the title is equally inspired! 🙂 ~j
