Before Sunrise

Her only precious possession was morning.

The first few seconds upon waking,


feet still in the land of the dreaming.

Those few sacred moments of stillness


before the world around surrounded her

reappearing in predictable sound and color


to force her into the structured daylight

a day when she was to lead


the one expected of her.
