Turn your face to the sun –
the light on closed eyelids
rinsing shadows from creases
of furrowed brows.

Drink deep from the well
freshened each morning
as sleep dissipates
and the day runs clear.

Reach down into dirt
and hold onto the parts of yourself –
too shy to be seen –
that make you grow strong.
