A New Day Waits

I have shutters on some of the windows in my new house
I’ve never had shutters before
My dining room windows have them
The windows over my desk have them too

There’s something about them that fills me with joy
something that prompts my heart to smile when I see them

I like how they remind me of little white gates
I like how the small gold latch holds them together
I love lifting the latch and swinging them open in the morning
I love letting the steady stream of sunlight fill my little space


Today is cloudy
the morning sun stays hidden
but I still swing wide my little gates
A new day waits to come inside
