Re-write: Morning!

Heavy roasted smell
earthy coffee brews
stretches in the quiet
morning stillness
of a groggy dream
addled slumbering house
A dog’s impatient
whine paces the space
between sleep and awake
somehow inserting itself
into the landscape of dream
Until an angry alarm shatters
Screaming glassy and sharp
Until dream fragments disappear
into layers of blind filtered sun
drowsing dust motes lazily drift
along the sun slivered stage
dancing in the momentary spotlight
bright stars swirling burst
in a bedroom universe.

  1. “Roasted smell earthy coffee brews stretches in the quiet morning stillness of a groggy dream ” and “until angry alarm shatters screaming glassy and sharp” really triggers imagery of the Ying and Yang of waking on a work day morning.
