First LIght.

First LIght.

A Poem by Fay Slimm

 

First Light.

 

If first light following night's release
seizes every day's dawning
to increase
the force of nature's fresh air feast
which overrides
residues of human sleep drifting
and provides more
meaning to a deep-stretch revival

why not breathe it in ?


If delight upon which one stumbles
at first light gives the urge
contained in that
humbling moment as dawn takes
up reigns cleansed by
dark silence to draw in morning air
and purge dream-dried
remains in lungs, heart and mind

why not breathe it in ?

 

If alchemy, in waking at first light
outweighs and changes
last cosy minutes under a duvet
by urging new ways
to adventure which illuminate life

why not breathe it in ?
