Sunday Scribblings "My Morning"



Morning chalice
Somber peace
Except the burr of snores
Solace of pensive thoughts
Meandering the minds maze
Portioning daily preparation
Tick tock tick tock, beats banter
Aroma of fresh brew permeates
Spirit stands at attention
Beaconing action
Beep, beep, beep
done
Count down begins
Quiet sips slither over arid lips
Satiating urge
Quick tapping of font
Stimulus awakens
Click, click, connection
Presto
Concoction of letters
Extended gulp bonds to palate
Calculation, concentration
Synergy Copulation
Bingo, a seventy point word
Scrabble sensation
Beller of a rock song
Flush of a toilet
Damn they’re up!

I love those mornings when I am up and the house is quiet. They are special - love the last lines: Flush of a toilet
Damn they’re up!

funny and how I can relate!

I've been laying off of the coffee, to avoid the afternoon crash that seems inevitable for me, but your poem makes me long for a cup!

Love the imagery of this poem, and especially this line: "Meandering the minds maze." I've found that meditation first thing in the morning gives me peace that lasts much more of the day than if I don't.
