Wake up, it's morning.
Open your eyes.
Pay attention to the sky, the weather,
The phases of the moon.
That weird tree down the street;
What is it? Learn about the flora
And the fauna growing around you.
Stop taking everything personal,
Nothing is personal.
Give a break to everyone, anyone.
Try to be a help, everywhere you go.
Wake up. This is your life, right now.
A wind blew the rain on through, mostly clear skies now. A half-moon. Between the rain and the wind, a lot of leaves fell, my street is covered. It is cold outside in my pajamas and a hooded sweatshirt, so I don't stay long, just enough to listen to the cold wind and see the moon.
Wet leaves scattered like lost children—
Shivering under the half-moon.
An autumn rain has passed over,
Nourishing the earth.
