in the morning as I run

 

 

Renee Butner CVR in the morning as I run 9 2017

 

 

as I run

in the morning
as I run
I forget the
cares and trials
to come later
in the afternoon
as I work
I pound the street
in bright blue shoes
a beat pounds in my ears
I mouth the words
the summer heat
beats relentlessly at me
the relentless winter wind
briskly cools my cheeks
I cool down
following the run
while looking to the sky
bare branches or green canopy
block out patches of blue
trivialities temporarily blocked
the day now moves in
as I go into the house
