5:18 am Orlando

awake before sunrise

i step outside the sanctuary

of my parents’ house to

a sky full of dark with

pale moon and

two single stars unclouded

by wishes of opal clouds,

air cool through my hair.

[Just found this in the intricate maze of my computer. Must have been written several years ago, before my father died.]
