I will wake this morning –
              build a fire.
Smoke will rise,
wood will lay down into ash.

I will eat oatmeal
with fresh berries –
red and black.

My feet will touch sand –
feel the warmth
of a burning star
thousands of miles away.

I will write words –
trying to remember
what came before
all this anticipation.
