haiku for the day: first things

It’s the first thing in the morning. I go outside. The world is something else. So refreshing, so new. With each day, with each sunrise, we get a new beginning. Yesterday is over. Done. Kaput. Tomorrow never comes. All we have is today. Right now. This moment. If we focus on the Here and Now, everything else fades into the distance. Our worries quit worrying about our worries.

cat’s meow and birds’ song
and sun’s dance through nearby trees
awake the morning
