Sitting quietly

As the morning light

Illuminates my surroundings

I absorb the quiet

As the ocean receives a river.


A kazillion projects

Wait behind me

Like sleeping children

Ready to begin,

And in front of me

A sparkling dew dripped forest

And calmly burbling ocean.


As Gia awakens

She beckons participation

And similar to an ant

I begin my day.                               June 6, 2015
