Open eyes, light shine through bright and golden
The blue walls reflect it back, warm and whole
Stretch arms, let go of all that was held in
But now, ready for the day to unroll
Leaving the warmth and comfort so known now
I take the heat and energy for me
To work for all that time will allow
And yet golden glow fills my room: a sea
And floating upon it, you will find I
Take in the peace for once, and soon I will know
In the blissful calm light, I am untied
Caught in moment absent from time ago
As the light rises and scatters away,
serenity falls, obligation stays.

This poem written in sonnet form, is about the innocence of light in the morning, and the feeling of freedom, sernentiy, and power in it.
