a psalm of awakening

O, My Maker,
Let the morning come.
Let the sun rise slowly
outside my window
peeking through silhouettes
of dark trees.
Let the hummingbirds
wake the world
with chirps of delight.
Let the rabbits scamper
from the gardens
their mouths full of fresh greens.
Let the crickets begin their song
as the earth warms in the light.
Let leaves unfurl
and reach towards the heavens
while welcoming a new day.
Let my spirit awaken
renewed and nurtured
by your love.

from my book Growing Grace: A Book of Psalms Celebrating Creation
