Underneath the rising sun,
frolicking through the flowers
where the squirrels and bunnies run,
it is easy to forget darkness.
Nighttime seems a world away.
So much can happen
throughout the day-
no two unravel the same.
This can be a terrifying truth
if you allow a restless mind
to capture negativity like glue.
Fortunately there is an alternative.
We can all choose
to bask in the temporary sunlight
until the time comes to snooze
and prepare for the next cycle.
Are unpredictable events ahead?
or is unreliable science at work?
Choose to follow the thread
that does not fill you with dread.
