Morning Impressions

Step outside in the early dawn.

One dog howls,

In anticipation of breakfast, then a morning run.

Dog dishes filled with kibble;

Their collars ring against the silver bowls.

Their meal done, their fun begins.

Red dog runs from the kennel;

Through the damp grass.

Squirrels run back and forth,

Taunt the dogs and make them bark.

Walking to the mailbox,

Newspaper delivered at dawn,

Gulf oil spill headlines,

Tropical storm Alex.

Crepe Myrtle in bloom, red tipped branches.

Wet grass soaks shoes and socks.

Thunder in the distance,

Coming closer.

Bad storm coming.

The day begins…………
