Today is an Awake Day

“gold coins of sunlight
bright reflections on the sea
myriads of sailboats in the bay
dark blue of snowless mountains
slope above the towers of windows

this is what i see this morning
my eyes are open
yesterday they were not…

and so

i proclaim

today to be an AWAKE day!

please oh please
let it be so

there are many things i wish to do…”
