A Thousand Risings

On a clear day
she rises in an instant
dawn’s faint light
consumed in brightness.

Yet when fog lingers
over still water
or clouds scale
the day’s new sky
gold is stretched
along waiting’s edges

revelation magnified
as glory is mirrored
in the transformed greyness.

Your daily faithfulness
through a thousand risings
is new every morning
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23
