it is dawn
a cool, sweet morning.

a gentle breeze laps at my cheeks.

i close my eyes and draw my breath
and sigh... exhaling slowly.

i lift my pen and write,
listening to the grass
and the dew

and the beauty held within
the tranquil horizon.

i am awake
and alive and
unwilling to escape
from the flow of life.

somewhere inside me
there is an oasis
for every dream

every scream
and every laugh
that emerges from

my deepest wells
visceral and untamed

here is where
i am most centered

most authentic and
vivified

the sky is filled 
with quiet light and 
bellowing blaze and

somewhere in between

there is a refuge
within which

the wholeness of me
is restored

once again,
life is in motion.

and i am bedazzled.
rushed.
worn.

this morning,

i pause 
behind my kitchen door
to witness and be witnessed.

life breaks through
every fragile boundary.

all the walls
are torn down.

i don't give an inch
to distraction.

i remain still.

i listen.

now.

again.

i inhabit
this body.

i feed on silence.

i entrust myself
to my own tranquility.
