Outside I see nothing
I hear the sounds
but unknown to me
is what I need to do.
One step, two steps, three steps, stop.
Four steps, five steps, six steps, stop.
There is a bit of light somewhere,
shining ever so lightly
opening as I make each step
and awakening my curiosity.
Seven steps, eight steps, nine steps, stop.
My feet are shake-less
my hands out stretched
my eyes and ears alert
as the light gains presence
and opens to embrace my frame.
Outside I see something
I hear the sounds
that begin to shape my way
and there I am realizing
what I do in this day.
