Daily Prompt: New Dawn

Daily Prompt: New Dawn

 How often do you get to (or have to) be awake for sunrise? Tell us about what happened the last time you were up so early (or late…).


I wake and go down to the kitchen with ‘spot on’ timing,
Mr. Coffee is sputtering his last, through the grounds and into the pot.
As I dress, I drink my first cup. Dark and warm.

Flannel shirt over wife beater,
Lace-up work boots.

Grab an apple
Fill a travel mug.
Fire up the truck and start north.
I’ll stop for breakfast in a couple of hours.

Watch the sunrise.
