Good Morning

bird

The bird is up.
So am I.
He makes a cacophony of his morning.
I write.

I simmer over lines
as morning treads in softly;
like some old movie
where they crank up the brightness.

There is no waft of coffee here;
just the sear of a sun bleary-eyed,
you need to open your eyes.

Read me.
There is a bird in these lines.

And some cacophony.

    Honestly, I am so happy to read that. I’m bored to death of reading poems about morning, almost always accompanied by “aroma of coffee”. This is refreshingly different!

    “Read me.

    Amazing. Absolutely amazing!

      Thank you, Ash! When praise comes from you, it gains a whole new meaning.
