A New Day

What is a new day
feeling the lake
before you reach it
to join everything stirring
as you all drift forwards
as the world turns
to pick up its first images
of light from the sun.

What is the park then
sensing a woodpecker drumming
before you get to its station
and a stranger pointing
it out as you peer skyward.

What is the walk home later
awe and a new perspective.
