The Way the Light

the dawn cracked sky

this 8am darkness

pushed open by this small moment

of light—

I look fondly heavenward

always remembering

the way the light soothes

with just the smallest grazing touch

healing deep into the bones

securing a heartbeat & breath, just one more

by simply being, always,

just beyond the dark, the cloud 
My skin, cold & white, tips forward, toward—

My soul, evergreens,
despite this

First day of Winter
