Wake Up

It’s time

to wake up and cast away

the shadow of yesterday’s 


and know as you take your

first deep breath of 

the morning

that you can trust


even though there

are real things to fear. 

You are not waking

or walking


Pay attention;

see without prejudice; 

and give thanks

for kindness

and love 

whenever it spills,

shining in golden waves over

the crest of the hill

or  in a fine mist

that soothes

the fever of 


Wake up.
