Monday Aubade

I’ve not watched sunrise
with you, or even seen
those first pale fingers
twist in your hair
alongside the silver
because before dawn
our house is a litany
of silenced alarms
and snooze buttons
burned toast

and looking towards the east
not for the sun
but the dawn
of a yellow school bus

***getting a little silly this morning.  It is Monday, after all, and pre-coffee.  Happy NaPoWriMo.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
