i greet the dawn

Happy New Year, my dear digital friends!

I thought I would begin 2023 with a song of gratitude, a paean of appreciation.

This year, I am making a stronger commitment to pause amidst the chaos and insanity of life. To spend a moment acknowledging all the small blessings that get lost in the white noise.

That – and to lose 20 lbs. I would be really excited to tighten back up for 2023. 🤣

One of those blessings I wanted to acknowledge is you, my friends. Thank you for reading and reacting to my poetry each week.

Your participation in this creative process is essential for me to continue to deliver art worth reading. My poetry does not exist without you.

Lift your glass. Here’s to a 2023 full of gratitude and appreciation. 🥂

And, as always, if you enjoy this poem, please feel free to comment below. Cheers.

i greet the dawn

i greet the dawn…

a lake without a ripple

listening to the darkness recede

with all its whispers and mysteries

bathed in the warmth

of tangerine grace

i am grateful for being created a lake

ever proud that i

can capture the sky

reflect her beauty in my silent depths

there is nothing i would rather be

save for that which i am

a purposeful creation

…i greet the dawn

a boat upon the lake

trusting in her gentle agency

safe within her delicate embrace


  1. What a beautiful poem! The imagery in this lake personified paints a perfect picture in your reader’s mind. But, what really grabbed me is the second to last verse! “There is nothing I would rather be, save for which I am, a purposeful creation!” These lines spoke to me. Again, beautiful poem, PS!

  2. What a beautiful poem to read on the dawn of a new year, with its whispers of possibilities. The words of significance to me are, reflect and grateful, which I do and I am. The last lines at the end are so very beautiful. We are all cast adrift on that boat, trusting for gentle agency. Dawn and dusk are my favourite moments in time.
    As always, thank you and may I wish you a happy, safe new year. 🙏🍷🍀
