dawn

children learn in geography
it is tomorrow somewhere
for the edge of every now
slowly shifts into yesterday
however
there is another,
a more important lesson to be learned:
tomorrow comes
only after the soul’s now
has worn the night of everything

 


Sister Lou Ella’s poems have appeared in numerous magazines and journals as well as three anthologies. She was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2017. Her first book of poetry entitled she: robed and wordless was published in 2015. (Press 53)
