good morning

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 7:03 AM

sun rose           red
eyes blinking back night
yawning cool like Coltrane
at the blue note

i welcome him           early
even though it's saturday
and our date is usually
pushed back

sun spoke warm
hellos as he rose
past night
to greet me

(c) me. just a few minutes ago. don't bite. savor.

    can't wait for the time change. with my new morning schedule, we leave home in darkness, drop off both kids in darkness, takes 45 minutes to arrive at work at sunrise
