Morning Poem -

Rilke said “Poetry is the natural prayer of the human soul.”

             I am weary and worn-out. Here is my morning poem.



I open the blind slowly today,
a bit unwillingly,
wanting to stay in my dark place,
though now I attempt to ripen,
like the pink of the sky -
willing to rise
and open my eyes
and yet there is that place
in me today of death -
willing to be placed in the sky in
torn apart and eaten this sore flesh -
I am weary today - in need of a cave -
I am tired, worn out, and achy with pain. 
I need to lie down, let all pour out,
all I no longer need holding me down -
Today, I want to be air - no ground.
