One Little Word for 2023

2023 is
waking,
basking 
in the sun,
reaching
for all four corners of the bed,
starfish-esque—
extending fingers
pointing toes.

Limbs arc
and muscles sing: 
"Make something new today!" 

Just beyond
the brush of hands
and feet
is an invitation
(a challenge)
to be more

flexible

playful

persistent.

Time to
loosen,
lengthen,
and warm.

Time to stretch.
