There is something in the air, as usual,
 1
it’s the meanings that elude
 2
the awakenings of the soul.
 3
And if you, reader, are asking yourself what
 4
me, the writer, means by awakenings of the soul,
 5
I answer: I don't know.
 6
 
 
I nod to the first person I meet,
 7
say goodmorning, go on with the morning.
 8
Morning is a speck of dust, it moves fast,
 9
you (me) are left dangling on the cliffs
 10
of imagination. I might be a brave
 11
hero, a tragic anti-hero, you know,
 12
life isn't heroic, but today the sun is shining
 13
reminding me of birth.

I like this very much.  Spring always brings the sense of rebirth to me--puts a little extra bounce in my step.  Thanks for sharing.

Thank you all for your comments.

josh,
I am trying to report normal everyday conversation.
Not sure it worked.

Regards,
