your cool morning breath
an exhale too quick, and slow
blows sleep from my eyes

[AN]

night, curled up below
digs stealth channels in the dirt
(my body warming you)

[AN]

o kookaburra!
your morning sense of humour
gets me every time.

[AN]

But look at that sun!
punching well above its weight
(click click, click click click)

[AN]

your pillowbreath –
a secret whispered to me
an alibi, also

[AN]

——-

Night sky at Ingar Dam
Foreign constellations swarm
and make me miss home.

[ST]

——-

Clouds on the horizon
Create a spectacular sunrise
That would be boring without them

[JH]

The sunrise is slow
But what more do you expect
From feeling the earth turn

[JH]

The sun is about to emerge
But I just got colder than before
Is that meteorology or my metabolism

[JH]

On mornings like this
The flaw in my vision
Drives me crazy

[JH]

Peach and grey start the day
Until sun crests the clouds
and then more colours emerge

[JH]

But is the sunrise slow?
Not really, says deep time
But don’t call me a speck. I say back.

[JH]

Now the sun is up
Looking where I looked before
is impossible. Too bright.

[JH]
