First day of Second Term- Hiku

alarms scream "get up!",

muffled grumbles, throws covers

winter break is gone


darkened bedroom lit

checking messages missed

groggy eyes blur screen


time flies, leaving soon

mom I cannot find my shoe

running out the door


upon the counter

coffee alone forgotten

long morning ahead
