“Be present in all things and thankful for all things.” Maya Angelou

Wild, Waiting, Long

The morning sets fire to still water
across the scope of my old eyes,
finding cygnets asleep singing me to waken,
to peel back the shell of days,
the kernel of destiny wild, waiting, long
for this moment of refresh to birth
as waves of joy raise my thanks.
