Toward Morning's Horizon


Laryalee Fraser

As night's soft-fingered stroke sedates
the anxious throb of slow decay,
I toss my cloak of pale regrets
and sink in dark momentum's sway.

Then dawn peeks in, all misty-eyed,
to shyly lift the languid shade.
She steps across my threshold view
and lays the welcome mat she made.

A scent of wonder slowly seeps
from drops of purity that rest
on petals yet unmarred. I rise
to navigate the waiting crest.

My tiny sail will catch the wind
and cross each rolling circumstance.
My moments lap on pristine shores
beneath the day's expectant glance.
