Poetry (Day 214): Before

Before

 

Floorboards cool and smooth.
Walking, bare foot,
through the sepia glow
of early morning.

Standby lights like
the glowing eyes
of nocturnal creatures
settling down to sleep.

Breathe the quiet before
the day’s engine
shifts gear to
the bash and crash,
the clatter and chatter of
breakfast and school lunches,
last minute homework
and pre-work melancholy.
