Eyes blinking open, flutter open, open wide
Legs lay stiff from a cold empty night
The sun pours in, brightening room, warming face
Beginning the day, the morning takes its place.
Afternoon brings the heat, the sun at its peak
Lunch as a picnic by the bay of the creek
The grass between your toes tickles up to your nose
The water on the rocks shimmers and glows as it flows.
Can you stand still by a tall oak tree
Can you listen to the rattle of the branches and the leaves
Dare you climb to the top to see the blue in the sky
Or lay in the grass, watch the clouds float by.
The sun sets its wings on a crest, say goodnight
The moon floats to sky and ushers in the light
Back to your bed, where dreams never cease
May the stars guide your thoughts as you lay fast asleep.
