“Nature detonates your mind with the incalculable freshness of the new day.” – Jim Harrison

 

Waiting like roosted

birds.  Eyes glazed.

To-go cups clenched.

Badly needing it.

They sit

or stand

oriented

toward

the focal point.

 

What motivates

them?

The need.

The inner explosion.

Fusion…

fission…

hydrogen…

helium….

 

Deep breath.

Hold it in.

Release.

Ahhhh, sunrise!

 

This is part of “28 Days of Unreason”

based on prompts taken from poems

by Jim Harrison.

  1. OH! You fooled me right to the very end! I LOVE this! As an early rising, coffee-drinker, I completely relate. Clever, as ever and a marvelous twist on the prompt. Thanks for joining in, Charley!
