I’ve Been Thinking
The present obviously influences the future.
Almost as obvious is the future’s influence
on the present. If the future influences
the present, its past, it, logically, can also influence
the present’s past which would allow the past
to re-influence the present and the future,
causing history/time to be rewritten, reestablished
again and again; therefore, your desire to feel
tomorrow’s dawn, its warmth and color,
invites you to sleep now just as the coming sun
also beckons the tulip bulbs you planted last spring
to diligence, the delicate welcoming its petals
will offer morning air, a breath laced with April’s final chill.
Now that all is clear, you may rise even earlier than you first planned.
