Rebirth: a #writephoto #haibun

Sunrise. The clouds layered across the sky like scales remind me of the saying “red sky in morning, sailor take warning.” But I fear no rain.

It’s a new day.

The bare leaves broadcast the season of snow to come. Winter will have its due. But I fear no snow.

It’s a new day.

I may struggle to rise out of bed. Rheumatoid arthritis may pitbull-grip my aching joints. The dull dread of another maelstrom to face at work may overshadow me. No matter.

It’s a new day.

Every day I wake, I can say it again.

It’s a new day.
