Awaken



Morning light rouse me

Lift me from  fog shrouded dreams

Break upon my sleep drugged form

Pull back weighted covers that hold me

Warm me with your radiant touch

Ignite every cell long dormant

Flood me with your energy

Startle me with child-like inspiration

History has never seen this day

Fresh and clean with possibility

Ignorant of yesterday’s chains

Yet swollen with unopened dreams

I seize the daylight

And will not turn back

Each moment awaits, fresh and pure

With jewels to be plucked

I know of promises long ignored

And love not shared

This day has gifts to be opened

Awaken me!

Note: I took this photo just after dawn. It is of a central Michigan soybean field and distant woods. The ground fog was just beginning to burn off the field, but lingered in the trees.
