Welcoming the Now

You've risen now,
but I'm asleep,
still dozing in my chair
while all around me
life is stirring,
springing into being.
Wake up!
Wake up, the seagull cries,
welcoming the now.
The day is new,
the water still,
the reflections clear.
Wake up!
Take notice!

And how much easier it is to take notice when the water's still and the reflections clear.
