Morning Sunrise

Written by: Caryl Muzzey

sunrise rushes eyes
taut from night of sleepy dreams….
clumsy fingers pry

hard floor limbers feet
stiff from immobility….
quick run to bathroom

java perks real strong 
black as the ebony night…. 
cold bran cereal

movement is real slow
old feet and knees start to ache….
tenacious treadmill

eyelids wide open
embracing daily house chores….
anticipating
