Sunrise Through the Kitchen Window

Electric melon seeping across powder blue skies

in wide, reaching swaths of brilliance

Back lighting the black lace of newly budded trees

Transform my kitchen window into a surreal painting

Fronted by a riot of orchids in bloom on the sill

I embrace this offering, declaring it an omen,

That today will not be another yesterday

That mercies are new

Again this morning
