In Front of Me

Standard

The sun rose gently today,

I am thankful for that.

Giving my eyes time to adjust;

Delicate light

Touches stone

And cactus.

Life around me

Stretches and yawns at once.

The birds join in

As they announce the arrival of day once again,

Happily

In synch with the natural rhythms of life.

The sun has peaked the horizon

And now burns my eyes.

For this I am grateful as well,

To set myself free of yesterdays burdens

And confusion

With breath and light,

For this is the world

Right in front of me.

Recreating

Standard

And he is doing it again,

Recreating

This enlivening within me.

Dissolving.

Peeling petals back one by one.

I try to hold it down,

Keep suppressing

The fluttering inside.

I close my eyes;

I sense

Him checking my pulse;

His fingers upon my

Wrist;

His

Ear upon my chest.

Feeling,

Listening

To see if i am still here

And i am grateful.
