“new morning routines”
I was never a morning person. I would rather snuggle under blankets and steal a few more minutes of sleep. The annoying alarm beeping, telling me it’s time to get up – the day lays ahead and there are things to do. Yet in time I have been able to muster up enough energy to exercise when the sun is low and the air is cool. A year ago this would have seem like a futile goal, yet here I exercising in the early light. When all is done I get ready for work – shower, dress, eat breakfast, even read a poem or two. Then I turn my attention to my smartphone and looked for messages from you. Six months ago my phone would have been dead silent, but not since you came into my life like a fresh breeze. Now every morning I look forward to the rising sun and your “good mornings”.
as the sun rises
living creatures come to life
new journeys begin
