Awakening, A Morning Psalm

The dawn broke over
the mountain, your mountain,
blinding white and prismatic
The sun, your sun, discovered
an uncurtained sliver
of window, my window
and the room exploded
into brilliance
Just a sliver of you
was all it took to find me,
to make me shield my eyes
from your furious sunrise
"Light, exist!"
Oh, God, how glorious
you must have been
when darkness dissolved
in the fire of your will
and a million mornings rushed
upon eternity, your eternity
Uncurtain my heart, My Urgent Lover
I surrender to this new day, your day
Dazzle me!
