6 AM

6 AM

every day I wake

awaken to life again

a return to sleep


only within sleep

do I feel the peace of death

into life I rise


awake, I must live

aspire to life within

create a life to be shared


cold, the white night sweeps

flustered flurries all a swirl

bright, each branch holds firm


alone, inspired

each flake contributes itself

greater overall
