Dazed by daylight.
The impossible reshaped
into possibilities,
the ability to see beyond a legacy
of doom and gloom,
feeling the spirit,
the willingness to do something
rather than nothing
or willingness to do nothing
to see the something.

Dazed by daylight.
After days of pondering
that time spent desperately
trying to figure out
too many things at one time,
underestimating the power
of taking a breath
and releasing it,
believing that believing
is enough.
Noticing that not all answers a
re answers, many are suggestions
often offered by ancestors
or a very conscientious Guardian Angel.

Dazed by daylight.
An option, a reality
birthed by a willingness to be
and trusting that which allows you
tobe dazed by daylight.
