I awaken.

i have been invited to be party to my own life, to step into the light, fully awake and engage. i can just taste the sun dappling through the shadows of the trees upon my lips as it slowly dries the salt streams

to choose presence, i explore ways in which i have denied joy, denied being party to my own life, denied being kathy, denied presence. it is as though a gentle hand prods and rocks me in a good way

it is time
it is time
to wake up
to come
fully outside
into the sun
and dance

in solitude, in quiet, i hear this still quiet voice which calls me by name, calls me “my beloved” and i know that i must make my way into the presence of wakefulness, engagement, light and life.

i stir.
