New Beginnings

at the end of night
when all has been black and still
breathe a new beginning
lightness breaks a moment
more magical than plain day
treasure the deprivation
that sharpens the contrast
and makes way for dawn
when the weight that
stills your breathing
lifts like a stage curtain
allowing a new act to play
a sense of new beginnings
keep not the night inside you
release the stream of reruns
let go the pain
and be present for the daybreak
see and listen to the wind
the birds that sing and fret
in this specific season
and feel the quiddity in the air
tickling over your skin
smell the musk of the earth
and know a new beginning
