Crisp and cool

No alarm sounded and no sound disturbed my slumber.

I awoke, noticed the early light and remembered yesterday's wavering thought;

"I'm up, I'm up" I said and pulled on my clothes and splashed my face.

Outside my strongest awareness was the quiet;

And next the relief of the morning air.

Blood courses and muscles and tendons stretch;

As I now rest, I am glad for the early rise

and the crisp and cool of the early day.

I like it! But now I want to sleep.
