The crack of an eye

My senses awaken

Dawn in sight

Birthing light

Thus the start of a new day

Sore bones

Sleepy eyes

The smell of coffee

A rooster calls

As shadows begin to fall

and night gives way to light

My brain awakes

My body aches

Contemplations of what today will create

Sans of fear

Dawns illuminated clouds appear

As morning rears

On this island so far

Yet ever so near

The sun finally rises

With skies so clear
