Here’s my Poem in my Pocket today that I wrote.
Morning Star by
Wenona “Buffy” Gardner

I am the light
shining in
the darkness.
A glimmer
of love in
a sea of black.
I am a sign
of hope
and a beacon.
Letting the
restless know
the dawn of a
new sun
is soon rising.
A chance to
start fresh.
A new day.
I am the light.
