“Arise and shine for your light has come, ” Isaiah 60:1 Artist: Rebekah R Jones, Created at European Leaders Advance, July 2014

Gently,

Cautiously,

I open my eyes

Blinking slowly,

I consider my day

Open, Closed, Open,

Fringed lashes curtain my view

Closed, Open, Closed, Open, Closed

Fierce blinking later, eyes forced open, fully awake

Unable to unsee what I have seen, perhaps they will now stay that way,

Open

Freedom, Arise and shine,
