Hidden by the Dawn

Don Hynes

Somewhere in the night you’re waking,

feeling the press of the world

while in the arc above you

shines the morning star.

The sky brightens pale blue

as you stir in the long transit

back from the dreamtime.

You assemble the pieces

careworn and fragile

of the person you’ve become

to navigate this life.

Cup of coffee, piece of toast,

perhaps now you’re ready

to show your face

to the world’s hunger.

As you break the darkness

with your road weary lamps

give a thought to the star

that guided you in sleep

and is with you now,

hidden by the dawn

yet burning with the knowledge

of your original self.
