awake

In those first waking moments, the mind plays tricks.

In that delicious gap,

just before consciousness cracks open sleep,

eyes detect sun shadows,

ears fill with bird song.

Blissful unknowing.

……..

And we’re back.

Too soon.

Alert,

aware.

Deep sigh.

This happened to you.

It really did.

Now,

get on with it.
