The Waking World

When you walk out into the world

And you’re struck by the first light of day

Sit, listen, close your eyes and allow it to envelope you

Have the audacity to claim the moment as yours

You’ve made it through the night

And your reward is the warmth of your bare skin

Lay claim to the vibrant ebullience

That is the waking world

And add to it your vim

It’s not the same

Without you
