i smell rain

The night is light upon me:

I awake wrapped in dreams.


I smell the rain

Before I open my eyes.


I hear the birds

Before I walk outside.


I breathe the deep

Before I start my day.


This simple gift:

A gentle arousal, and


The time to awaken to

A new dawning,


And another chance

At grace.
