April’s PAD — Day Four

April 4, 2014

Prompt: take the phrase “Since ___” and fill in the blank. Make that the title of your poem and write the poem.

Since Dawn

I spread out my arms like robins’ wings
and give thanks to the welcoming sun
You are still there, still snuggled under blankets
as spring shrugs off her winter coat
I watch your chest rise and fall
there was a time when Death almost took you
a time when I feared the rising dawn
when awake I would have to face your grave
But by some supernatural’s hand
you are still with me
I still choke on the sun’s rays
My throat swells with each birds’ song
and the fresh morning air strikes my lungs
And yet, no matter the pain
I spread out my arms and welcome the dawn
