Alphabet City

I have so much to say today
so I shake you to wake you

Get up! and I’ll tell you
of life that bursts
to get inside

Your mind and your heart,
need I mention the soul?

If indeed there are
such things

Fragile things that come and go
once, or twice, I don’t really know
though I do when it’s only me

I dreamed that I once was atop a hill
wondering which way was down
so I followed the cooler breeze

Was that you where the sand ran
dry to wet at the edge of the dense brush
opening wide to the sea?

Of all that we were and all that we are
in prayer that we’ll someday be

Wake up! I’ve so much to tell you
