Poem 65 – Thrum

Thrum

I awake to the
velvety thrum of
heartbeats rushing
in the deeps of my ears
a foreshadowing rhythm
for a day alive with possibility

Before my bones bear down
in the moments my muscles
meet the morning’s whispering light
I am not afraid or worried
not less or better than

I am velvet thrum
blood
rushing
to greet
skin
