She tip-toes out the door 
one slow step at a time
to watch the darkness 
of the night sky
slowly begin to open her eyes.
listening to the whispered secrets 
of the breath of life
she quiets her heart and 
empties her mind.
 Swaying trees, shimmering leaves,
open arms folding her 
into their embrace.
when …
a single chirp 
calls forth the world 
in a symphony 
of the awakening day
