Breaking Day

To [[be]] with the meaning
of sunrise, simply,
until the very source of what it is
to hasten to this far horizon
as it sinks into gold
is given you by [[grace]];
rise and fall fused
by the feeling in your [[heart]]
as two hadedas scream the Name
and a starling unfolds its red-winged [[song]]
backed by a small choir of bush shrikes,
believing their place to be [[now]]here
but [[here]], beholding [[heaven]]
behind closed [[eye]]s as the clouds bleed
crimson and a thousand other colours beside,
breaking in waves which bring back
a brave diver drenched by the depths,
lying gasping on the [[beach]], still begging
this wide world:

"Never quench me".
