suchness at sunrise


lozenges of sunlight shimmer on the bare brick wall

this little sanctuary receives the first probing fingers of the rising sun
and opens itself to them in delight

it’s a relentless tropical sun
emerging from behind the eucalypts,
passing behind the lillypilly,
climbing into the palm tops and then breaking free
into a cloud-speckled cerulean sky

the wonder of it!
one rises, emerges, climbs, breaks free…
and never leaves the cushion!
