Finally Waking Up

Suddenly cast out of dreams
Peaceful alarm neither bell nor static
Just the stirring of a graying hound on tile floor
Rhino slept well
Now coffee, biscotti and news
Still-Life setting
Soap suds sink, white dishes in a rack
In my Rhino cave I share with my lover
Momentary Internet and notes from distant friends
Tapping plastic, clicking rhythmic unfulfilled
Muffled whirr and mechanical sounds
Dull white computer noise
Traffic floats on audio waves through my walls
Cars, motorcycles, planes, Helos and trains
No dogs bark
No sirens yet
My shower
My last day at work
Thoughts of taking back my days, hours and minutes
Ruminations about cost, delays and true love
Masterpieces incomplete
Lonely canvas await brushes, paint and me
The day beckons the painter in my soul

Finally Waking Up

Artist's Description

A poem about another life transition. I have been working but not painting much which disturbs me. So I gave two weeks notice and find myself happy to try something new if only that it will bring me closer to my dreams…
