Rise up, it’s dawn again, rise up!
The blue moon is still full and
There’s still time to dance by the light of the moon.
Wave your arms, wiggle your butt, jump and shout!
Rise up, it’s a new dawn again, rise up!
All of yesterday is purged, cleansed, and open to the day.
No bodily afterthoughts of your youth and agility,
No mind games playing what was against what is against what will be,
No games of the heart remembering what was and not being ready for what will come today,
No more denial of the spirit, but hope in life that sustains.
Rise up, it is the dawn of your time today.
As the sun breaks over the hills and the moon retires from its realm to it,
The sunshine spreads over the coast, across the low tide lands, and onto the sea,
And the sunshine spreads over me full of hope and spit awaiting today.
So Rise up all my friends known and unknown, all the strangers unmet and unacquainted,
Rise up to all of God’s animals to birdsong, Crow caws, Gull yells, and jay chatter.
Today is your day too.
Rise and see what’s happening.
How will today change you?
