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.

I am a retired educator who is currently completing a PhD. Prior to teaching, I worked in private industry for 15 years and returned to university to earn my education degree. For the last 17 years I taught, I was a teacher in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. My dissertation topic is how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects.

  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
