Morning Run

posted in: Poems 2014 | 0

The stars are visible even at dawn.

I breathe the scents of morning dew,

stretch my arms wide open.


My red trainers are worn-out

but a new smile gleams on my face.

Forget the race of life, I run at my own pace.


I kick the pain away

like an empty can.

The breeze strokes my cheeks


My lungs expand…

I listen to the chirping of sparrows,

forget the static noise in my earphones.


I let my heartbeat slow down

under the graceful gliding of petals

from a cherry blossom tree.


Soon I feel the sunlight on my back,

your tap on my shoulder.
