Morning routine Heating on full blast, sleepy fingers start to itch, seek warmth from pages. Dawn, reluctant awe, accompanies my journey, not quite linear. Fresh memories fall at will, at ease, on paper. Daylight peeks through glass. All secrets open. In my book of joy: regret. Souls explore suns, space. Time curls, drags, unfurls, then ventures on detours, spills. A story unfolds.
