“Happy Beginnings are Made of These” – BGC, 02 July 2015

in the

half-light

of morning

and the

city

begins to

stir,

casting off

cobwebs

woven in

the night

in dreams,

and the

aroma

of coffee

wafts into

one’s awareness,

and ideas

begin

to form.

 

grabbing pen

and paper

scribbling

as i

sip

the first

cup

of my

day:

verses

flowing out

with ink

rushing like

the traffic

below;

frenzied

hectic

exhilarated

frantic

getting from

point a

to

point b

lickety-split

and i

feel the

adrenaline

searing through

my veins

with every

word

that appears.

 

and i

am wide

awake

in every

nerve

as i

gulp down

the last

of my

coffee

to the

dregs

and bolt

off

into a

new day.
