Waking Up

Sleepy eyes open
Limbs stretch dormant muscles
Another day starts

Lay still for a minute
Mind searches for the days' needed tasks
Wondering about dreams

Mental wings flex open
Ready to take flight for what is offered
Available: On

Legs swing over edge
Feet touchdown on the wood floor
Slight wince from the cold

Body walks out of room
Not just leaving a cozy domain
Also safety for thrills

Dreams are safe haven
Shelter us from the real demons
Real life's a jungle
