awakened way too early without sunlight,
gray sky’s fondness for me,
wiping crusty yellow sleep from dulled eyes.
black cat meows, rubbing ankles,
blurry eyed I fill his dishes…
tea or coffee? where is my mug?
head wishes to return to pillow.
witness to gloomy, rain thoughts,
way too early in the morning.
