thirsty thursday

ran one
{mile}
with two
crazy kids, then one without
and no doubt: 5am is easier
than 7:15, when that sun
has already taken charge
of this too-bright sky,
and I am sweating, dreading,
threading breath through
fiery lungs and steamy skin.

i much prefer pre-sunrise,
the apricot surprise
of blushing skies,
and silence.

    I prefer early morning workouts too. Less distraction, more peace of mind.

    Delicious, exquisite way to describe dawn:
    the apricot surprise
    of blushing skies,
    and silence.
