The Sun Snuck Up Behind Me

Not sure if it was the day

In my sleepy dark fog

I saw the light coming

When I leaned down to tie my shoe

I saw a bright light behind me

Was it the neighbor’s floodlight?

No,

I turned

to see

a great ball of fire

creeping up

through the orange trees

It set me on fire

With gratitude

for

Another day
