morning writing

I am racing the sun
this morning
as I try to get words to paper,
words to screen,
words to fingers to keyboard.

I am racing the sun —
before my thoughts scatter
like night creatures
into hollows
and cracks in old stone walls.

Here before dawn
there is such quiet
and focus…intention.
I am racing the sun
before those scatter too.

  1. I love that time of morning – the world seems so full of possibility. I also know the feeling of racing to get words on paper before they escape my mind. The older I get, the easier it is for things to run right out of my mind in no time at all. :-) I love the picture!
