The day was gray and cooler
The thunder split the silence
Wishing I could stay asleep
No way to maintain the trance.
Coffee and a bagel while waking
The thoughts still coming alive
Sun should be coming up soon
Awake early, it is just past five.
Showered, dressed and restless
Maybe a walk will ease the mind
Jacket pulled close and hooded
Still a crack the rain will find.
Cold rain and a gentle breeze
Chilled though it already feels
It does get the mind to stop
Home where more coffee heals.
