Welcoming Summer

a morning prayer

open my eyes in the morning
when the birds first wake the sun
and sing its rising to the world

beat my heart steady and strong
the pulse of a world waking
the quiet rhythm of emerging day

breathe in me air newborn
cool and clear, pure possibility
refreshing night’s stale spirit

call out to every cell
wake up! wake up! morning is here
and life is new again
