On This Shining Day-Inauguration

On this shining day
we awoke to glorious
milky sunshine.
The air felt pregnant
with expectation
On this shining day
we were mesmerized
by two little girls
enormous brown eyes
laughing smiles.
On this shining day
a father, husband, son
became a president
of great consequence.
On this shining day
a judge issued an oath
a preacher prayed a prayer
a singer sang a song
a poet summed
it
all
up
Bless this Earth. Bless the Leaders. Bless those who are Led.
