Haiku No. 200: Waking Up


Shore Blvd. in Gulfport.  The building used to be a casino, and is still called one, but it’s really a dance hall, with other activities like karaoke on the beach once a week. The other side of the street is restaurants and bars, shops and galleries.

Coffee in my cup
Before the dawn lights the sky
Eyes still thick with sleep.

Ceiling fan’s low hum
Is the only sound I hear.
Alone with my thoughts.

What will the day bring?
Sunshine, heat, a breeze, good friends.
Life under the palms.
