The sun creeps down city streets,
dew retreats from the grasses
and fills the air, with sweet scent
until spent, the bus passes.
The robin sits in the tree
as worms flee into the lawn.
The morning foretells the rain
that will slowly drain the dawn.
The city quietly wakes
and stretching, shakes off the sleep
it slowly comes back to life,
the sun a knife cutting deep.
