5:30 am

5:30 am
The sky is pale,
not gray, not white, just the color of a cool glass of water.

I walk through wet grass, my toes getting wet through my shoes,
soon my pant legs are soaking.
My cheeks become moist as my breath condenses on them
and my hair clings to my neck.

Finally I just stand in stillness and drink in the morning.

What is it about seeing more light at daybreak that fills me up and sends me off into the day with joy bubbling like soda pop beneath my skin?
