Don’t Go Back to Sleep

“Establish reality at the beginning of each day or others will do it for you.”

Returning home they said is the biggest ordeal, 

But today no ordeal

Simply standing in wonder at the window 

Watching the sunrise

Black clouds underlit 

By orange light 

The rising of this day

Open eyed and stilled to silence

So my days have been marked 

By sunrise and moonrise

Such joy such peace

Don’t go back to sleep

Don’t go back to sleep, they whisper

One thought on “Don’t Go Back to Sleep”
