Succumb To Serenity

Blackened eyes willing to see
Leaden eyelids fight against the crust of a dreamless night
To open the black lace of lashes
From consuming black to bleary greys to a starling gold
Dawn has arrived

The golden shimmer burns along the horizon
Singed hilltops slope in a magnificent mandarin flame
Caressed by the first light of day
The silent air seems to hum and vibrate
As daybreak forces the midnight forces into retreat

With each passing moment
The golden fingertips stretch outward
Stroking each treetop like a familiar lover
Invading hidden depths
Exposing them to the world

The curtain of night gives way
A glorious valley sprawls out before me
Its velvety teal blanket shimmering its gratitude
The Goddess has awoken and the Earth has replied
“Live. Thrive. Inspire.”

Thrice I blink
But this is not a slumber-inspired wonderland
It is Nature in all her beauty and grace
Ready to nurture and arouse
My constant companion

With this day, provided to me with such glory
I will strive to draw out each moment
To run my fingertips through tall grasses
To make a stranger smile
To savour an exquisitely ordinary meal

I will dance wildly to unhinged rhythms
Send flowers for no particular reason
Lay on a hilltop and gaze at the morphing clouds
For a day like this should not be wasted
Appreciate the perfection provided to you so obligingly

Love those around you and live your life in wreckless abandon
One life
One chance
One perfect day
All yours, if you’ll only open your eyes and take it.
