LOOK OUT

The Hawk Dining Room 10:50am

How Many Times Have I Written

about The Silver Streaks of Light

out on The Ocean

or on top of My Head?

How Many Times Have I Written

of The Chances for Grace

grasped by My Eyes

filtered through My Hands?

How Many Times Have I Written

of being bathed in The Shower

filtering through My Wash Cloth

as I am preparing for now —

The Literal Shower

of The Day?
