Morning Sight

they're my kookaburra
wombat koala
emy kangaroo
& platypus
compressed
into two:
momma & babe
caught  in monday
morn's early
light

light filtered
by dusty screen
& glass jalousies

light it is they bring
dark they shatter

they're my
anchors wings
bells trumpets

where else
where else
can i wake
to a sight
more empowering
& inspiring
than my two kookaburras
clasped in
sleep's embrace?
