Day 12: Yawning hunger

I wonder how the words "yawning" and "hunger" ended up going together.

It doesn't make sense, but at the same time the phrase "yawning hunger" feels so right.

It implies a vastness, a stretching achiness that fits a certain state of being. The one I'm in now, for example.

A yawn is deep wide, mouth-agape. Hunger might be what smoulders in the base of the yawn. Therefore yawning hunger might mean that you are open and waiting to be filled...a state to be desired...
