Waking Up


I am creating MY life each time I breathe,
each TIME I awaken,
EACH time I step forward.

No earthly second passes
that does not mark my pulse and
BEATING heart.

I AM ALIVE!
I AM ALIVE!

Life moves through me and around me.
I join with the swirling cycle of ENERGY,
I am lifted high on its currents
to a CEDAR bough within the clouds.

I survey a crystal DAWN; the new day
wakening and filling with the light of
SPIRIT!

Golden rays reach out to me like
GENTLE hands of love,
my face warms and my heart HEALS.

I AM NEW TODAY!

I stand and walk to the edge of the clouds
and with one
DEEP
FULL
intake of BREATH,
I dive into the day beneath me.

  1. Hi Deborah…., I AM immersed in the JOY of your writing. Hard to imagine that something so ” simple” and “natural” as words can shine such a bright light. As our Cree friends say…, Ki-chi Manitou, meegwitch

  2. Wow…., sometimes I long for the days of candle light, quill and paper and the magic of National Post….. lol…. brad hercina ( just in case – better cover my bases )

  3. Lovely reminder of how special each day is and how extraordinary a day becomes with appreciating the simplw things-breathing-we normally take for granted. Thank you dear friend!
