Perfect Morning




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


this universe,

and every possible


as if

you cannot be transfixed.

Why does it bring

such pleasure

to see you


by this star,

as if you

were born

of its photons?


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.



HG – 2022
