one morning in January

the sun rose before I awakened

so startling it felt

as though

I had missed the day entirely

and slept

whilst spring flowers

pushed through

the soil

their bright faces turned upwards

yawning from their long sleep

kissed by the sun


tickled by the breeze


while I slept and awakened


in surprise

by the new season
