Awakening Sunrise

By Amba Gale

Your rising
red orange crimson yellow
ever-changing light
ever-changing shape
moment by moment
in the sky
in the sea

startles me.

Looking up through the living room’s glass door
to the outside,
I am amazed, aroused, engaged, awakened,
astonished by your light.

wake me up to the present
as if I have been in a dream.
Presence comes first.
Astonishment rushes in a brief moment after.
Wonder follows,
then these words of love to you.

Bothered, ensnared, engulfed
by all my worries,
I have been asleep.

Your sudden appearance and my willingness
to be surprised meet and hold hands.

Waking up now, out of my dream,
I am the sunrise.

There you are.
Here I am.
No space between us.

Wait patiently for the light to make its way through the dark. It will, you know. Embrace the obstacles; they will set you free! Accept them all as gifts, a vast surprise, make room for something new to come, and wise. If you want, you may go inside, untwist the brambles one by one, do the inner work that must be done. Let the moist leaves, the twigs,…
