Poem 208 – Morning Flower

Morning flower

my motivation remains
curled up in bed
the sleep fog didn’t
dissipate in the shower
I’m holding this pen weird
‘cause my fingers
aren’t fully awake

words are weak
like water-heavy tea
nearly tasteless
but the heat –
the heat gives comfort
& remedy to trust that
I will open soon enough

feel the day vibrate my toes
& dance like a morning flower
in love with dew
