Now and Again

There is no alternative
to falling in love with
the world each day

as the orange sun
peeks up from behind
the mountain,

and the moon settles
across the sky. This
is the last time

your morning skin
will feel this particular
sunshine, the last time

your heart will be
broken open just so.
Each morning lights

the invitation, and all
that’s left for you to do
is to notice.
