Up Before the Sun


This morning,
thanks to the relentless door bumping
of my cats who thought I was a laggard,
I was up before the sun.

On a wet Pacific Northwest morning,
with heavy overcast and leaking clouds,
there is scant reward for being up so early,
except not having to hear the cat thumps and bumps.

Ah, but in Egypt it's a different story.

No matter where you are,
no matter how gloomy the skies,
I wish you the colors of a Luxor sunrise.
