Up early with a steaming cup of Folgers
I watch the sun’s awakening and wonder
what it was that creased my brow
just yesterday.

It seemed so vital then, some minor thing
that did not suit my schedule, or some worry
that imagined a dire fate, but then the sun
came up this morning

I learned a friend is recovering, that daylight
following night is not based upon my mood;
it is something that can be relied on.
Thus, this gratitude.
