Awakening I

by John Bokma | 0 comments
A reflection
in a horse's eye
showed me that:

       the world is alive
       the moon, my child
       and the sun,
       my wife

The 23 of June, 2005, I woke up in the evening, after a catnap, and somehow had those words in my mind. I wrote them down without much changes. This is often how I write my poems, they suddenly appear in my mind, and I only have to write them down.

After writing this one down, I played a bit with the idea, and wrote a second version: Awakening II.
