once, on an early morning…

“The longest way must have its close – the gloomiest night will wear on to a morning.”
Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom’s Cabin

I woke up before 6 am only once, and wrote this:

the moon is a half slice in

the sky


the trees are hidden

in the half twilight


the creatures stir

and the race begins

are you a morning person?

    1. I envy you being a morning person, I have tried to will myself to be a morning person, but my body’s clock is not happy about that!

  1. Morning is the time when I own myself. After that, people start borrowing parts. Repaid parts never resemble the originals I loaned. People don’t take care of borrowed things.

  2. Oh man, I have to get up at 5 am multiple times a week for work…I think I’ll be putting a stop to that nonsense soon. I used to consider myself a morning person, but now I’m old and the parts don’t work as well as they once did.

  3. I’ve been a morning person all my life, but I’m also a very light sleeper. Since turning 35 and becoming a parent, I’ve had an increasingly difficult time sleeping through the night, often waking up 2 – 4 times. What I hate most is when I wake up shortly before my alarm is set to go off. That’s the worst!

    1. I will tell you how waking up before the alarm feel when it happens lol! I have had trouble with the quality of my asleep as well, it’s very tricky business!
