opening





riding the raft of sleep
into the pearly light of dawn,
being introduced and welcomed
to this fresh new day...

hope rising with the sun

eyelids opening to 
the opening of this day
to the opening door



the tender opening leaves
of American Beech
the soft opening petals
of Round-leaved Hepatica


dew pearls strung 
along a geometry of silk
at the opening of morning
evaporating with time


the mind opening
to imagine
the heart
opening to display
gratitude for this day.
