broken mornings

dawn interrupted my dream
agitation creeped in
I turned over, again sought slumber
looking for you there

shadows behind the tree,
I thought ’twas you playing
hide and seek with me

but my reverie was broken, and sunlight
penetrated my window
dragging this unwilling victim to move
with the morning
quiet thoughts of you I’d carry
in pockets of my brain
throughout the day
