Rise and Shine

In the quiet light of dawn

I’m alone

Sitting up


With plush pillows, supporting

Assessing mentally

The aches and pains

Of my body

Of mind

Feeling the present moment


Not too bad today

My legs still covered

In clean cotton fabric

Slight creases

Sleepily waiting for full sunlight

To start off the day.
