Dawn

Kookaburras laughing in the predawn light.
Mocking.  A sleepless end to a sleepless night.
A late drive with too much caffeine, the first night in a tent in months.  Not enough water to wet your mouth, but too lazy to get up.  Back aggravated by sleeping on the ground, and disturbed by someone moving in the early morning. Thoughts tumble through my head, questioning the decisions that lead to this point. I know I'm not going to sleep again. At this point I'm just awaiting dawn and others to start to stir.
