My eyes snap up, the stars have set.
I open the curtains. I feel the sun slowly circle through the rough edges of night.
My consciousness , it remembers feelings from last night.
Stress, a joy, assignment.
This brain is busy tending to the day before it begins
and yet in a small, rare moment while standing in front of the sun,
greeting it with my small, gorgeous being
I get to baske in the momentary hope that I can be
anything I want to be.
Fullness, don't leave me. Don't let this brain insert its foot
into the path of sweet morning calm.
The cycle of daily duty will continue to beat down.
But today I want to remember this swelling of my heart
as the sun shined its healing into the pores of my soul.
Life will be what it will be.
Open. Pliable. Full of second chances.
Full of opportunities to react, adjust.
Full of moments to be everything I want to be.
