Come with me and stand before the dawn,
let us be still,
wrapped in the blanket of darkness
within and without.
Watch with me
as sun splinters break into our worlds,
to see and to be seen,
never giving ourselves in total to the light,
but residing in the threshold of shadows
to protect this precious gift.
The invitation of this day comes
through the mist across the vast sea
ensuring the mystery of our adventure,
the known and the unknown,
consummated through our eyes,
a revelation, a constant re-veiling,
for to see fully would be not to see at all
as it is in the familiar of things that we lose our sight.
From this dawning may we awaken
tired eyes blinded by the ordinary
and welcome the wonder of this new day.
