Morning Greeting

Earlier this morning,

I was slowly walking out of my dreams

and into the world.

Habitually,

I reached for your hand,

hoping you were walking alongside me.

Instead of your warm skin on mine,

the warm morning sunshine enveloped my palms.

A little more awake, I remembered…

you’re busily setting the world on fire.

So as you shine your light –

absolutely fearless of what it will expose

in you and other people –

I wave at you from the distance.

Happy, happy day

to you

and all the world.
