Awake

Standing in the shower cubicle,
I press the button.

A sudden torrent of cold water

Greets me,

Drenching me in shock!


Reassuring thoughts babble on;

That soon the water will be warm.

But they are powerless against

The sheer physicality of being awake,

In the shocking cold water


And then the warm water comes,

Bathing me, embracing me.

My body drinks it in,

With deep appreciation

And awareness


Ahh!
