whatever majesty

sunrise over the city
streets fresh for the first time
holding no grudge
passing no rumor
or holding a candle to the past

the shadows last
but they know their place
escaping quickly allowing
the heat of summer to spread its arms
crack its knuckles
and extend its arms
in that way that brings a sigh
and a smile
before returning to normal

and we speed past
over and through
taking for granted
or ignoring
whatever majesty
created all that beauty
in the first place

One thought on “whatever majesty

  1. I love this line:
    “The shadows last
    but they know their place
    escaping quickly allowing
    the heat of summer to spread its arms
    crack its knuckles
    and extend its arms
    in that way that brings a sigh
    and a smile
    before returning to normal.”

    Never thought of the day beginning with a stretch and cracking it’s knuckles. Great thought!
