a renewed morning

She spread her arms wide, the sun’s warmth

embracing her lithe body like reuniting

with an old friend at a favorite little bookstore

over freshly brewed coffee, chatting about

pursuing dreams once forgotten and

finding love in unexpected places. Finally,

finally, cracks once too deep and thought

unbearable filled with inspiration. The sun’s

rays burn brighter with each passing second

and night disappears behind her back,

fading from observable thought and tucked

in like a long-awaited good night’s rest

and she hugs herself, tightly, and even

places quarters into expired parking meters

before dancing into the rising sun.
