The Sun Awakens by Daniel Dischino

Insecure as I am
I need to hold on to something

So I grab on to my sense of insignificance
as a race car driver
grips the steering wheel on a hairpin turn

I have seen mountains
and climbed them

An insect on a seaside boulder

and sunrise brings the mountains to light

A star to make mountains seem but dust

An amoeba on an insect on a Seaside boulder
resting on the Earth

I have the day to prepare
my small and developing mind
to what wonders the mountain sunset might bring

Daniel Dischino is a poet from Boston MA. USA, where he lives with his wife and son. He is also a local musician and hosts two bi-weekly poetry podcasts.
