Darkness is still in control
As morning works it’s way in.
The smell of coffee moves throughout,
Pushed by a tireless box fan.
A cat meows for more attention,
While a dog’s tail provides a canine Reveille.
This is the new groove,
Beginning the day without resistance, sort of.
Because we could all use a slow down,
A chance to wake up slowly like the sun.
We would all do better without
The shock of the alarm to nudge us along.
With the coffee done and the cat quiet,
The dog needs a walk.
The easing is over, so it’s out and into
The rush of the day we go.
