Kayaking in Crisfield

Dawn Revisited

Dawn Revisited 
by Rita Dove

"Imagine you wake up
with a second chance: The blue jay
hawks his pretty wares
and the oak still stands, spreading
glorious shade. If you don't look back,

the future never happens.
How good to rise in sunlight,
in the prodigal smell of biscuits -
eggs and sausage on the grill.
The whole sky is yours

to write on, blown open
to a blank page. Come on,
shake a leg! You'll never know
who's down there, frying those eggs,
if you don't get up and see."

I love this poem. It is one of my favorites. I have a copy of it on my refrigerator to remind me that each day is a blank page, and that I am the author of what is written.

What will you write on your blank page on this Monday morning? Are your "life" pages making you yawn? Head to Crisfield and enjoy life. You deserve it!

Kayaking in Crisfield does look very refreshing, fun and relaxing. I wish it wasn't so far away. I'd be there in a second If I could.
