Daybreak, Again

Day 72 prompt: daybreak

When does the day break?

Is it when the sun first appears on the horizon,
breaking through the darkness?

Is it when I hit an intellectual slump that
breaks my concentration, sending me snackward?

Is it when imposing problems stall progress,
breaking my spirit to keep trying?

Is it when I hear the clamorous greeting, “Mommy!” that
breaks my face with a smile after a challenging day?

Is it when my heart finally relaxes into prayer,
mindful and thankful for the body
broken just for me?

When does the day break?

Again and again.

The sun rises.
Again.

The son rises.
Again.
