Wake the Sun

Puppies leading me to sunrise

Today I walked the dawn with my puppies on a lead.

We trotted our ten legs awake at gentle morning speed.

Wind tickled through our ears and whispered all around.

Sleep-slow feet and paws pit-pattered on the ground

Till through a brightened dew we three slowed to a stop

Squinting up we realized we’d woke the sunshine up.
