There is a Dawn


Artwork by Lisa Adams Reed
Poem by Scott Lockhart

“There is a Dawning in My Soul”

there is
a dawning
in my
soul
that
lifts
me from
this
frozen
plane.
I was
laid
bare
here
for too
long
like
tall leafless
trees
that
stood
watch over
many
cold
and empty
nights.
there
is a
new
light
rising
now.
I can
feel my
roots
again.
everything
is changing,
growing.
the
hard
ground
is giving
up
its
resistance.
unbound
I am
free.
