It all starts before awareness

heartbeat drumming

breath caught fast

into harps that do not soothe

and a dog’s whine

the ticking clock

chasing that heartbeat

down cold, tile halls

awareness finally comes

a fog lifted

with the cheerful hum

of the coffee maker

strange morning symphonies

to bring us into the day

finding readiness

through the dark – Caroline A. Slee
