I am here

Here I am a feeble wisp of stale warm breath just about to kiss the crisp air at dawn… I am a lonesome fickle thought drifting alongside a fluffy cloud thankful that I too get to be a vessel for life one more time I, the hearty ripple of an ancient mountain's loins and a sturdy branch of this fertile loam soil beneath my feet that’s highly expectant with the promise of renewed abundance Here, as a tiny glittering grain of golden sand gently licked by frothy waves as they sprawl across the sea shore where I lie, soaking in the warmth of Ra’s love as he rides across the skies to worship mother Gaia and anoint her with the gift of fertility once again I am here the warmth in a widow's lone tear soon lost to the nippy evening breeze Me, the melody of a bubbling brook Here for now, as the faint sigh of a heart releasing the past at last Here I am, the onset of a bud's slow and timely yawn the silent roar of a weary nod… the waning ember of a spent lump of coal the courage in sweet surrender and the depth to a humble curtsey I am the flash of lightning in an eagle’s eye but only because of the love for life aflame in me still, a broken shell Here, I am, still a part of all that is, for now I am the peace within just being For I too count as today I am now as life boldly declares on this day
