Brand New Day

27 Mar

Forsythia in bloom

In spite of the drastic drop in temperature from last week it still seems like spring–the season of renewal.  Especially standing in the bright sunshine and admiring the forsythia in my front yard.  And the lawn will need mowing fairly soon since the dogs are already grazing in the back yard.
As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts when the muses strike there’s no shutting them off.  The song below was written during a jammie day while in the process of losing my voice.  I managed to squeak out the last of the song before it was gone completely.  Today feels like a brand new season.

Brand New Day      Weez  November 2000

I sit by my window
as the dawn unfolds
and the night rolls back
while the stars go dim and cold
as the sun flames bright
in the Eastern skies

"As the sun flames bright"

What shall I do
with this brand new day
what difference can I make
to this world I live and love in

"Brand New Day"

I sing to the earth and trees
in the noontime hour
and the water flows darkly by
while the wind most definitely cries
as the air grows thin
over Southern skies

"and the water flows darkly by"

What shall I do
with this brand new day
what difference can I make
to this world I live and love in

"Brand New Day"

I pray to the Gods of Peace
as the evening draws near
and the sky burns red
while the hatreds of the newly dead
rise as furies loosed upon the land
under Western skies

"and the sky burns red"

What shall we do
with this brand new day
what difference can we make
to this world we all live and love in

"Brand New Day"

I dance with the moon and stars
at the midnight hour
and the night glows bright
while a sleeping world sends its
healing dreams as protective wings
o’er the Northern skies

"I dance with the moon and stars"

What shall we do
with this brand new day
what difference can we make
to this world we all live and love in


"Brand New Day"

And so I ask that we treasure each day and make what differences as we can.  What shall YOU do with each Brand New Day?
