Sue De La Bruere







Slivers of light piercing slumber

Awakening not gentle nor kind



Screaming box that taunts

Begging to be shattered



Burying, hiding, unaccepting

Blankets pulled tight to secure darkness



Luminosity at its peak, more demanding,

Eyes that are now cajoled open



Body thick with other world visions

Barely convinced to let go, to rise above



Smelling newness and sun and caffeine

Ready to dismiss all rest, inspired by novelty



Taking the dreams along as party favors

Weaving them into a walking existence



Smiles with pancakes, grins with juice,

Sweet residual joy from the journey
