As the earth spins
the little bit I am on
turns from darkness to light
my sunrise

A beautiful quiet moment
birds singing they are alive
no wind, no rain, no harsh sun
the sunlight on the clouds

All the world's asleep
except for my amazing thinking
about people, about things
not peaceful, not quiet

I am grateful for the sunrise
as the earth spins
creating every day and night
with no help from my thinking
