Daybreak

glow spills over hope fills room
yellow streaks wooden floors
through sideways slanting blinds
wraps me, hugs and warms my insides
woods beyond slatted back fence
chirp birds one by one
rise greeting the sun
awaken new possibilities
sputter and spill in coffee churn
daybreak brings journey new
toes curled below warm fleece
tucked neatly to my chin
toast the new day
brush cobwebs give way
and let a beginning begin

********************************
I am so thankful for today’s uncomplicated NaPoWriMo prompt. I am completely spent from the 50-mile race I ran yesterday, that I can barely put two words together to speak, let alone write.

Today’s challenge is to describe in great detail your favorite room, place, meal, day, or person. This can be done in paragraph form. Now cut unnecessary words like articles and determiners (a, the, that) and anything that isn’t really necessary for content; leave mainly nouns, verbs, a few adjectives. Cut the lines where you see fit and, VOILA! A poem!

I am also behind a day in the poem-a-day challenge because of yesterday’s race, so I will need to make up Day 11 at another time when my brain is more functional. From what I can see, the Day 11 challenge was a doozy.
