hesitant genesis

the sun rises
     as the moon accepts
  a reluctant departure

 my eyes
   have not acknowledged
and my mind
  stays fogged
    in denial

fatigue
     has soaked in
  to a disrespectful depth
every muscle
  and joint
    ache with age

    but I will rise
like a phoenix
  from the ashes of sleep
         into the glory
    of the risen sun
