here is morning
clear as
the sun
bathes the white landscape outside my window
my mind my eyes
traveling paths then and now
and tomorrow
my children
my parents
my sisters
my brother
my precious woman
all there on the roads of my present concern
telling me they're happy I'm alive
that I've made it this far.
constant retreat
stopped for now
and a certainty that today
I'm not a man too soon come into himself
too soon realized
too late for laughter.
tomorrow I put aside
and I put my head down
my heart pulsing in my throat
my loved ones content while
the morning
unfolds its glory unabashed
bolstered by my love
