April 2021 PAD #05 getting on (with the day)

a shadow
across the light

I close my eyes

it is a bird
momentary
in the sunlight

there are dancers
swaying around the corners
of my eyes
none-the-less

did I rise
too fast?

is it nothing?

should I
perhaps
fall right back down
again?

no
there is no going back
anymore

risen
is a-risen
so
let the day bring
what it will

stepping out
into the wall
of solid light
is one way
to deal
with confrontation

and there is nothing
in the day
that I have not met before

I know that

but
another hour
between sheets
might have lifted me
above

another hour
and I might
have woken up

one more hour
on one more day . . .

would that really be
me
asking too much?

but there is nothing
I can say
so I keep it locked inside
and get on
with . . .

what I must

just
get on with it
