Regeneration 

I surrendered to the life force this morning,
Palms outstretched, in front of me, on the floor,
Head down, heavy and comfortable.
I thought of my defenselessness,
Within the walls of my home.
I marveled at the people and idols who in times past,
Stood defiantly at the head of such worship,
How foolish they were to think,
The life force kneeled before them.
All that stood before me,
Were some of my things and the sunlight.
