It Begins With Waking Up


This poem speaks to the need to wake up and be present in the world. When we are, we feel the sun’s radiance kiss us and we sense the universe more completely.

It all begins with waking up,
the sun kisses a face an’
feet stir to set on the carpet,
during this time hating the day
may bring one to fate with a gun
while one returns the kiss with heat,
passion for the sake of it
for a race starts with no done date
one can only hope to beat the sun,
it all begins with waking up.

About ivonprefontaine

I have been an educator for almost 20 years. Prior to that, I worked in private industry for 15 years, then returned to university to earn my education degree. For the past 11 years, I have been a co-creator of learning in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. A main theme in my learning there has been the roles of systems thinking, complexity theory, and organizational theory, and how they apply to education generally and the learning environment I share with students, parents, and colleagues.

  1. Waking up – that does require one to actually open their eyes.
    Or at least feel in some manner the shift of time and the midst of morning.
    Adjusting to time and space on a different coast this morning :)
    Cheers, Jules
