Morning breaks after a rain-soaked night
the sun rises over the peak of a nearby house
beginning to warm the day.
Petals scattered by the storm lie drifted
strewn across stone walkways
reminders of recent sorrows.
She awakens and begins her life anew
does not read the words written
instead sets them aside.
Sitting in the sunlight she sips coffee
feeling her spirit renewed
her passion for living ignited.
