WAKING

Morning light, and in soft
strokes of oil pastel,
rose, coral, summer wheat,
a face quiet among the ruffles
of crumpled bedding,
eyelashes of your shut eyes,

as my wakened nerves stir
morning into meaning
by all such secular mandalas,
the new occasions of weather,
abrupt particulars, the shock
of scalding coffee,

each day sure to grow
sleek and gargantuan
with its excessive possibilities,
a garland of fret,
and the habits, hard work,
the required names,

but we are rich as thieves
in the immediacy
of the first awakening
before we remember time
and words expire
into only what they say.

—David Helwig, Sudden and Absolute Stranger, Oberon Press, 2016.
