A New Day For Love

Wearing in mid-May, on another cold night,

An old worn night-shirt with faded stars and moon.

Blinds closed in the living room,

Shut tight from years of lost nights

Alone, I dimmed the lights.


I traded my night-shirt, for all those sad dreams.

I opened curtains, pushed them back

And cracked the blinds to let in sunlight.

Opening the door to the ‘morrow

Wearing new sneakers and comfortable jeans,


I heard you knock.

Kissing me on the lips

As I opened the door,

You held my face,

blushing my cheeks.

    I like this renewal of the relationships…your voice underlines the meaningfulness of them.

    ZQ! I visited this yesterday and thought I had commented on it–a sweet and lovely poem. I especially like the close–one feels the blush and the lips. K.

    I like this, a lot:
    “I traded my night-shirt, for all those sad dreams.”

    I believe things are looking up. There is a right time, this was it.
    Practical ones say it should have been done years ago. Not so,
    there was no magic then, this was the time. Nice write, ZQ.

    One note: ‘night’s’ should be ‘nights’ since it is clearly plural, not possessive. Other than that, very good work. Like how the change of clothes signifies a change in the person.

    How well the shift of clothes change it for you.. Love the thought of that shirt of faded stars and moon…

    Ah, always good to let the sun shine in! It can change one’s mood entirely, I think, to shed some light. And as for new sneakers, that definitely is another way to make one’s spirit rise!!
