A creeping light unfolds around
my muzzy mind, more sombre thought,
as if true insight wakens me.
No herald chorus from the skies,
no tweets or hedging from the box,
nor twitch or twitter, flash mob chat,
winged messengers, angelic chants;
the only arch, zygoma bone.
And yet it’s as somnambulant
has stirred to this, first day begun.
It’s eyes, the focus of that change,
source and well-being of fresh stream,
both inward, yet too pupils learn,
new orbit in this spinning world,
as dawn, another, solar space,
says earth keeps wheeling on its way.
My dawning, born in darkest hours,
beyond ellipse of planet play
was awesome trust against the grain;
a rising from the dead of night,
dashed dreams turned nightmare, rolled away,
the bedrock, love’s eternal sway.
