THE MORNING SKY



I hope you have time to see the morning sky
to thank whatever requires you to be up so early
for this is the time of day when special thoughts are born
and the quality of those thoughts
can be so like the sky
limitless, possessing crystal clarity
and as colorful as the blue-streaked, rose-tinted morning.

As you go about your day
facing whatever must be faced
doing a job that may seem drudgery for you
remember a vision of life in the sky
limitless
unobstructed in potential
and reason enough to stand a little taller
then lift your chin and look up
for nothing can stop your good day
your good thoughts
and your good future.

  9. I wake up in the darkness and drive part of the way to work in the dark, but I think of the bright light that greets me to start my day. It always is bright and happy way to start the day.
