I rose with daylight
An especially gentle and peaceful awakening
There were no bizarre sounds
Nothing loud and irreverent
The morning drizzle pettered on
Every so slowly, it was certainly in no rush
Isn’t that poignant
Somehow a remarkable lesson from nature
I think it is.
I’ve never seen nature rush, never in a hurry
She carries herself regally, gentle and quiet at times
And raging powerfully at other times
And if nature hasn’t shown it’s bipolarity
Well if you haven’t noticed nature’s bipolarity
I think we haven’t paid enough attention to her.
I rose regardless of the rain to watch the suns steady arrival over the horizon
She tired but for an hour
But alas the rain clouds won over
And as I watch the light pinkness disappear
I salute her bravery for showing up
Every fucking day
This, this my friend is my God.
