Running Haiku

Here's my attempt at Running Haiku, and a little glimpse of my morning.
I am very blessed to live where I can have a rave run everyday!

Coffee in the pot
Four-thirty alarm clock sounds
Drink up and get dressed

Out the door in dark
Cranking flashlight as I run
Down the gravel drive

Rubber hits asphalt
Footsteps quicken as I go
Long-sleeve shirt comes off

Headlights pierce through dark
I move next to the white line
Log truck rumbles by

Violet sunrise
Fog lifts in silver patches
Cool mist kisses me

Near my turnaround
A herd of elk stands silent
Watching nervously

Mailbox is in sight
Stop my watch and stretch awhile
Morning run complete
