it’s morning

once upon a time

we forgot
it’s morning
and today is new

and birds are
calling out to us
we forgot
the sun
and its blessing
and the cool grass
under our toes
we even forgot
children!
babies!
and our mothers
and fathers
we forgot
and love we forgot
and ants and trees
and squirrels and
clouds we forgot
and courage
which is love
we forgot
speed
overtook us
busy-ness
busied us
things
thinged us
style
styled us
comfort
comforted us
safety
alluded us
once upon
this time
our time
it’s morning
and birds are
calling us
children are
playing
and babies
are reaching
out chubby
hands to us
and mothers
and fathers
are thinking of us
and clouds
are making
moving pictures
on the sky
for us
and all
that we love
we have
sped past
forgetting
us
