One time

By Nicholas Hooper

One time
I found a space
found a place
to show my face
Now I know
how to go
and to throw
reason’s mind
to be kind
then I find
that there’s more
and more and more
forever reflecting eyes



About Dawnings:
“Every morning at around 5am I get up and go down to my studio. After a short meditation I write down whatever is in my head, giving myself fifteen minutes to do so. Then moving over to the piano (or a more portable instrument like my Ukulele when I'm away), I improvise and record a piece of music inspired by whatever words I just wrote. It is a great way of keeping both my writing and my composing going and I call these small creations Dawnings. They are mostly unedited, like sketches, so that they keep that fresh feeling of an early morning discovery.”
