In that unfamiliar half light,
bleary eyed and paper mouthed,
heavy lidded contemplation.
Odd rays slipping in like unwelcome strangers,
lingering by the window,
puddled by the door.
Limbs still weighted by slumber,
Clumsy with unfamiliar language.
And before the haze cleared,
our first words were speechless.
My breath, then yours,
rising like the dawn.
