Awake

Awaken the soul.

Listen

And fuel the craving for

Kinship.

 

Awaken the voice.

Silence

Then burst forth in glorious

Singing.

 

Awaken the mind.

Wonder

At all that the world has to

Offer.

 

Awaken the eyes.

Dream

of all that is yet to be

Made.

 

Awaken the body.

Open

Hands wide to all others in

Friendship.

 

Awaken the heart.

Heal

From wounds that require

Forgiveness.

 

Awaken the senses.

Refresh

In moments that add up to

Joy.

 

Awaken the system.

Surprise

Yourself and adapt to the

Change.

 

Awaken the spirit.

Emerge

From the waters below you

Triumphant.

 

Awaken the strength.

Lift

Your face to the sunshine in

Confidence.

 

Awaken to life.

Move

Forward embracing

Today.

 

 

Awaken to each of the moments before you

Knowing life is the tide and the sea

The pace-stress and the daily profundo

Will all melt into recess and tea.

 

Listen to silence and wonder

Dream and open to healing refreshed

Be surprised as you lift face to heaven

Moved to love others as much as yourself.
