before dawn

ahead of the sun
able bodies gathering
to breathe together

  1. Lovely haiku! Reminds me of the lyrics to one of my favorite songs:

    “Mouthful of Air”
    by Catherine Wheel

    Deeper and deeper, I go
    Your hearts drownin’, I know
    All my intentions are clear
    I need to rescue my dear

    So I dive, don’t despair
    Coming down with a mouthful of air
    To share

    To swim with the shellfish, I wish
    And suck with the sea queen, I wish
    Muscles and coral are here
    I need to rescue my dear

    So I dive, don’t despair
    In the gloom just assume that I care
    Coming down with a mouthful of air
    To share

    I’ll feed you much better
