Five AM Again

Writing in repose
whispering snippets of old lyrics
a soft rasp without a tone
a sliver of spirits
a slight and gentle bite
familiar and warm
a broad and formless night
disguising a creeping horizon
a heart-shaped ashtray
balanced to one side.

Dogs are barking
white eyed.

Time to turn in
for tonight.

  1. In repose, quiet in respect of the rising sun.
    Writing scribbles, dabbling along, tables turning sideways while hoping for it to come.
    Great words to greet us, if only for an hour.
    If our minds choose to wake us, why not give us reason for being awake?

    1. Aww that’s very cool, I love those lines “If our minds choose to wake us, why not give us reason for being awake?” because that hits right on what I was aiming for here. Thank you Brittny, I always appreciate your support, your thoughts, and your creations. ๐Ÿ™‚
