Yes

The morning starts with yes
wrapped in the smell of dawn

as it sheds the night
star by star

A no always stings
the throat & those sheer curtains
are so inviting

The moon reflects
on the day star by star

We say yes

My name is Phillip. I live in North Carolina with my wife of 12 years and 5-year-old son. I am a Tar Heel born and bred and watch every Yankees game I can. I'm still searching for my own TARDIS. My first novel, "The Alien in the Backseat," is available now! https://amzn.to/3oVCG77

  1. The weekends can be my “No” mornings, slipping back to sleep until 9-10am. “Is it lunch yet?” I ask my wife. “Just about it”, she replies.

  2. “star by star

    We say yes”

    This is such a simple, yet profound truth. By merely rising, the majority of us do not even realize we’ve made a choice to say “Yes” Love this.
