Urban Sunrise

Free verse poetry

Awakening in the city,
She’s surrounded by voices
Yelling, laughing, weeping;
Pots clattering, traffic noises,
Banging, honking, beeping…
She has never felt more alone.
Slipping on her sneakers,
She goes jogging in the snow,
Her breath frosty in the cold.
Dawn breaks behind the gray
And faceless buildings,
A flirty dirty urban sunrise,
Winking pink persuasion,
Eliciting a maybe
Things will turn out fine.
