Liberty’s New Day

Still and Patient

Although liberty dies
There’s a Moon that will rise
Casting moonlight below.
Oldish dreams fail to grow.
Patient stars ever will
Turn around but look still.
Evening Sun creeps to set.
We’ll eventually get
Some new day some may see
Although maybe not me.

  1. Yes, those new days dawn ad infinitum, & I search for the light, the insights, the healing, the knowledge, the truth–and by twilight, I realize the new day of our hopes & dreams has not materialized yet; oh for tomorrow.

  2. I like the pondering hope in this…that remains, even if the author isn’t part of it. Like leaving the world a better place, whether you will ever see it or not. Such an important perspective.

  3. Reminds me of these lines in Kahlil Gibran’s poem from the prophet on Children.

    You may house their bodies but not their souls,
    For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
    which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

  4. we never know what a new day will bring though the sun and moon move in precision, we can only be still and hope for something good, I like the reality of not having a good day or too much expectation. So I am never disappointed.

    1. It is perhaps best to be open for surprise beyond one’s expectations and if it doesn’t seem to appear assume we aren’t quite seeing things right. I am not disappointed either. Thanks, Gina!


    1. I am amazed looking at stars how they seem to be still and yet an hour later they’ve moved along the sky as if they are busy in spite of their stillness. I am glad you liked the photo.


  5. Hope springs eternal Frank. Your work encourages me that even if today doesn’t bring the expected, and even if i don’t see it in my lifetime, it will still come to pass. Thanks for the encouragement

  6. The image of the nesting swan – a beautiful symbol of patience the way swan a parent keeps the eggs warm no matter what kind of weather – and your ‘patience of the stars’ go so well together here
