The day is not yet ready

The day is not yet ready
to burst forward with full light.
Instead she turns tentatively
afraid of the sun's inevitable bite.

Wanting to leap forward,
she's made a few passionate steps,
only to realize that the axis of her footing
solidly has not yet been met.

And what of expectations
for all those future dawns and dusks?
The day is not yet ready
to understand nor hungry enough to trust.

And in time the day can learn to flow
with the turning of a lunar tide,
but for now she fears
the scorching sun and a blue moon ride.

So until the day is ready
to embrace the weather patterns ahead
she'll hide inside earth's poetry,
and the safety of her imagination instead.
