Poetry Corner: ‘Crayola Sunrise’ by Jim Farfaglia

Crayola Sunrise

By Jim Farfaglia

Somebody’s been up early,

coloring with the orange, waking

the eastern corner of our sky.

They’ve added some yellow,

which brings to light

the promise of this new day.

Trading their black for blue,

they shaded a starkness into joy,

filling in spaces with possibility.

Up above, here and there,

they’ve drawn patches of white,

so dreams can float and ponder.

Then, off in the west

goes a silver star, a reminder

of where we’ve come from

and where it is we’re heading.
