Too Early Morning
I woke around 4 am to the sound of hard rain hammering the roof. My brain kicked on and I found myself unable to get back to sleep. Every sound, every thought grabbing my attention and not letting go.
So I got up and read for a while, holding off to the respectable hour of 5 am to boil water for tea, hoping not to wake the entire family. For awhile more, I sipped and read.
Then, hoping to fend off the 'woke way too early' ache in my head, I closed my eyes for a bit. When I opened them again, this is the morning that greeted me. Lovely, silver and gold glowing across the lake.
