today





Today reaches down into the dawn
and rises with you clutched in its fist;
you flail and expect to be slapped down hard,
but the landing is gentle on a rock warm and smooth

Today covers you over with a curled, cupped hand,
not to smother but to reassure
until you fully wake and remember all of which you are capable;
to pat you like a small soft pet
newly found, immediately treasured
