Image for the poem awakening

awakening

 
I'm reminded everyday
how transient time is
there is no forever
even pain will eventually end
in the final moment
with that very last breath

yet I'm constantly shown hope
with the repeated approach
of every sparkling dawn
drawing back darkness
and the ever changing of seasons

as I stare childlike
wide-eyed
at all the little helicopters
whirling joyously down
freed from their swaying branches
scattering seeds wherever they landed
sowing nature's love

I tuck naked toes
into dew-kissed lawn
ignoring the chill
as it's so fleeting
and I'm too busy daydreaming

you & I
waking by the lake
birdsong
no worries
woodsmoke on the breeze
as we rise in silence
side by side
and just breathe
