The start of day…

how it begins, sometimes i wonder
when do i consider the start of day
with the sun’s rays scorching the clay ?
or the first tweets of the birds at play ?

crows of the chickens wake me up
cries of a baby lead me to get up
the engine of the car that grinds
or the day’s grilling of our minds

at what time should a day begin ?
when there’s banging of ladles and pots in our kitchens?
what should define the day’s beginning ?
is it by the dawn’s slow sun’s rays bursting ?

characterized in ancient times by a sunrise
the beginning was ended in sunset’s light,
the advancing evening was not a disguise
God’s defined day, is the process of daylight becoming night…
