Morning

There is an evil moment right before waking when everything seems to pause, and in that moment of suspension a dark and unbearable weight hovers over us until we make a movement – lift a hand, twitch a thigh – and then the heaviness lifts and we are fully awake.

The pause is important. It invests in us a conviction that it is important awaken.

I did have my pause, and the heaviness of it was malevolent. But when I finally opened my eyes...


...there it was: Light.

an liwanag makulog sana man sa enot na paghiling lalo na kung biglaan. pero pagkalampas nin pirang segundo, minalaog ining maimbong sa hawak asin dai ta na mamawoton na magbalik pa sa kadikolman.
