You are a Sunrise
And a bright Star
And the Light that Lingers
in the middle of my Lake.

i wish i could take credit for this one because it’s so damn good, but it was written by poet Etheridge Knight. i ran across this back in my college days while editing an anthology of poems by african american poets. it’s a reminder that a little can say a lot, that things within and without us reflect one another, and that an abundance of beauty can be found in the simple and ordinary. hope this one takes your breath away too.
