Every Day. Every Day.

Every Day. Every day.

“HELLO!”

To the light!

To the stalwart tree stand

To the neighbors across the way

To the slice of sky above

And to the smile that etches across my face

And seeps into my heart.





Every day. Every day.

Very much the same.

Yet,

So very much a “first time” sensation.

That light (sun shine or rain drops, or snow flakes, or sidewalk puddle gray)

Those trees (naked but not afraid, tiny buds of lime, lush hiding places, golden gowns)

Those neighbors (silent, but present – except for the darn dog yipping at a scrambling  squirrel)

The blue, blue, blue of the sky (or early flaming sunrise, or wisps or billows or threats in the clouds)





As Miriam and Webster informs me…

“Hope – To desire with expectation of fulfillment”.





Thus, the smile that etches across my face

And seeps into my heart.

Every Day.  Every day.

  1. That was wonderful – especiallly the music video. There are still tears on my face and I don’t want to wipe them off!

  2. Susan, what a wonderful poem of hope. “Every day. Every day. Very much the same. Yet, So very much a “first time” sensation.” May we find new hope and light on this new day!
