Perhaps it is in the first glimmer
of light streaming in the bedroom
window, or maybe it is the awakening
from the longest slumber. Our eyes
light upon rays beaming from within.
And in that moment, we are forever
transformed by the sheer intensity
of light’s attention. We feel, even
as if this is the first time, our whole
being alight. From this astonishment,
there will be no return, only a sweet
remembering of that moment,
of first finding morning.
