Awakened to a dim lit room
Covered warm in blankets heaped
Secure and snug in my cocoon
My mind is free while body sleeps

I begin to think of how I’m shaped
Curled and curved, all tucked within
And ducks and geese and squirrels and snakes
The shapes they are when they begin

Before their birth all living things
Seem to be in curl or twine
Even leaves and flowers begin
In a knot til blooming time

E’en from a shell or seed or womb
Emerging to a dawning day
All creation does unfurl
Then awakens to the day

So bloom today is my heart’s cry
Creep or spring or jump into
It matters not your mode or pace
Come shine God’s love this day of grace
