‘Dawn’ is about windows through which we receive things in life…
It is about observing that life, as an ongoing wonder, regenerates itself.
I wrote 'Dawn' because I have always loved looking at windows and thinking about life in general. I found this a very calming experience, which leads me feeling 'this moment is all there is".
Just before the dawn,
we may sit on the bed
and look at the cold,
leaking through the window,
melting right where it falls off.
Just like the water,
with its honest composition,
through the same window,
sun will begin to find
our sensitive skin again.
When next morning spreads over the window,
let's sit again, let's behold
all that comes in, all that is coming,
you may see,
neither the cold nor the warmth
have remained the same
by next morning.
