I Awaken

I awaken in sips

as I breach the cold dark,

undulating through the mind’s long slumber.

Above the surface, sound pierces

colors blind

details sharpen.

One sip

to orient

before sinking

into a darkness that must not remain home.

I angle again toward the light.

    Oh, my, yes. I had to read it several times… and then save it to my computer so I can read it again. You really touched it.

    Thank you, Subby.
