Repose

When is the last time you looked up at the night sky?

Took a walk along the water’s edge,

Stars’ reflections along the bay,

Flickering between the waves

Constant in their rotation come what may.

When was the last time you touched the fresh, frigid air?

The exhale of earth’s breath

Onto the landscape harvest has left bare,

The circular travel of our lives

Around a natural rhythm

We dare to call time while we’re alive.

When was the last time you stood in awe of the night sky?

When was the last time you took the chance

To lay your inhibitions at the feet of lengthening shadows,

To find rejuvenation and wonder

In the renewal that comes only

With the Earth’s spin, seasons’ change,

Night’s hidden beauty, and Mother Nature’s repose?
