morning routine, 2022

Santosh Shetty, Bert Fields Park, Dallas TX (January 2022)
These days my mornings
begin outside with the sun
in my face. Texas
makes this difficult most days
what with heat and mosquitos.

But it’s a habit 
now -- a tan line on my nose
where my glasses sit.
“Here’s another day,” I think.
And here too am I. Thank God.  

This is another tanka poem. Sorta.
