Poetry: Breakfast

Por Odyssa

October 24, 2022

6 in the morning, 21 degrees 

another morning in Hanoi puts me at ease.

Scrambled eggs, fried rice, 

20-minute yoga I roll the dice

Back to sleep? Back to bed? 

Back to dreaming? I get up instead

On my motorbike - alleys and markets pass

Heart flutters with sights but I need to get to class!

Coffee Shop in Hanoi

Pho Nui Cafe, Cau Giay, Hanoi.

Time goes by

without my permission

I just got older by a day

Truth needs no admission

The day has began

I catch it without fear

One blink and it’s over

Today is now and here.

More of my poems here.
