Here and There

February 6, 2016

Dividing time
in two spaces
A foot here
A memory there
The beginning star-bursts
Hopefully to cheers
A rush of here
Expected
Then fades
in upward dissolve
Sunrise exposing itself coyly
that you may sleep
through the passing
Here to there
It is expected
For you
to say good morning
When you get there
and see, wise ones
Who wake early enough
To behold you
In reds and purples
Blending night with day
Letting thoughts go
up in procession
to the great knowing  
where they burn too
bright to look at there
Yet here
teetering
between stars and sand
pouring over the edges of everything
is a sunrise worth waking to witness
