A wet nose finds my still hand, a tail drums the wall, my feet fall into carpet. I rise, the dog heeling me down the hall to his bowl. The cat eyeballs me and patters, eyeballs me and patters, luring me, creaking down the stairs to her dish. Black sky fades to indigo while I pull on yesterday's yoga pants and t-shirt, glows royal as I unroll my mat. Traffic whines in the distance. A train blows its warning. I sit cross-legged and breathe into another day. Another day to love those I love. Another day to care for those who need care. Another day to flail at all of it. Another day to wonder. The sky fades to royal, then old denim as orange and peach rise through empty branches. Another day just out of sight.
