Perfect Morning

 

Be

beautiful,

let the light persuade you

to commit

to the morning

and shed

the web of night.

It’s true,

you hide

in the place that you reside.

You know

you’re told

that’s where your head

should lay,

but your mind

wanders away

through

this universe,

and every possible

moment,

as if

you cannot be transfixed.

Why does it bring

such pleasure

to see you

irradiated

by this star,

as if you

were born

of its photons?

Something

peculiar’s going on,

as if you are meant to feel

this radiation

on your skin

and turn light

into life.

At this time,

at this moment,

there is no one else,

but you,

and the blue sky,

and the bird song

of this perfect morning.
