Mourning Morning

It's
Morning
Time

Morning reveals
Much too much
Much too soon

I
Open
In the night

Beyond wakeful

Night is quiet
Thin, deep, tasty

Then
Morning beckons
World rushes in again

Light is loud
Lost in blurrrrrrr
Thick, shallow, tasteless

It's
'Mourning'
Time



Thomas Merton Brightman, “He Who Bears the Gift of Tears”
