AWAKENING

Enticed
by Morning’s
first
Caress

her Heart
swells
to embrace
the Sun

Warmth
from without
Light
from within

She is
all at once
immersed in
Radiance

Quotes to consider:

“We are near awakening when we dream that we dream.” – Novalis

“If every day is an awakening, you will never grow old. You will just keep growing.” – Gail Sheehy

“I would have the studies elective. Scholarship is to be created not by compulsion, but by awakening a pure interest in knowledge.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Creativity comes from awakening and directing men’s higher natures, which originate in the primal depths of the uni-verse and are appointed by Heaven.” – I Ching

“The poet knows himself only on the condition that things resound in him, and that in him, at a single awakening, they and he come forth together out of sleep.” – Jacques Maritain
