first thing I see


first thing I often see is dark
invaded by glaring alarm
I squint
get up and outwardly ready for day
still inwardly dim

what I'd like to see first
is pictured above
an aspiration
I have
trouble attaining

but I took this picture
one morning
in dark
happy with
the light

pictures can lie
illuminating only part
yet
they can reveal the perspective
you want

May God grant that desire of your heart to make the first thing the first thing. Praise to Him for His mercy with our weaknesses. He knows our frame, that we are dust.
