resurrections

.......................................................
.......................................................
Painting by Lorraine Rigby. 2016
from a distant shore, the tick-tock in your soul is heard,
it revives you...
.........................slowly.
You become aware of the softness that is around you...
You become aware of the aches and pains that walk with you...
You become aware of the love that rests with you...
you become aware......slowly......

The resurrections that occur every day...

Your senses start to sharpen...
The singing birds celebrate your awakening...
The singing is nature's alarm clock.......

Opening the eyes to the new world...
The brightness of the day is too much...
We close and re-open until satisfied...

We turn to the mechanical tick-tock....
To see our earthly time...
Slowly realising... knowing our duties
Knowing our purpose....
Knowing our responsibilities....

Waking to the world...
I give praise to this miracle!
