i am 5am.

i am the last of the night sky
before the sun
scorches eyes
and torches skin.

i am huff-puffed
breath and silence,
the violence of fiery lung
and too-dry tongue and
and ohjustonemorestep. 

i am the rhythm of feet
and the serenade of birds
and the beating of wings
and my own limbs, tranquil
-thankful for another day.

    I could do, “I am 6:30 am”. You’re a go getter at that time of day, and thankful for a new day. That rocks
