New Moon

Tomorra is the gentle light
Of the waxing moon on Sundae's Eve.
It is like a gauntlet that lands
Quietly
Asking
'Are you ready now?'
Yea, 'tis a second chance.
Tomorra is the opportunity
To make an unforgettable Yesterdae.
It is everlasting forgiveness
It is thy reward for survival.
Tomorra is that feathered flapping
To the unwritten future.
Tomorra is a hyacinth kiss
From your higher self
Tomorra is the clue of hope
It is all that excitement you feel
In the light of the waxing moon.
This is a time to rejoice ye know-
For now it is Tomorrow.
