This beautiful morning delivers
through swirling pastel cloud wisps
a baby pink and blue sunrise.
The gentle view sets my tone for the day.
No complaining, even in thought—
I will have, exhibit, and enjoy
peace, patience, love and kindness.
I’ll start by not caring if the sunrise
is a boy or a girl.
I can’t decide it, but I can delight in it.
Tomorrow I am sure I will be back
to persistence, effort, and goal setting,
but today I am taking the day off
to play with the baby.
