Poems Writings

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 go in spurts. Time where I am up at 5 a.m. and others where I can’t get out til I am at the last minute that allows me to still arrive at work on time. Your poem is beautiful.

    1. I am trying very hard to wake up early in the morning so I don’t have to rush, but so far failing with flying colours!

      1. It’ll happen when you least expect it. ☺

  2. I’m normally a morning person, but once I get off work at midnight or 1am….not so much😊

    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. Some people are truly night owls! I don’t think you can force your natural biology to change.

        1. Em says:

          that’s what i’ve been learning and trying to embrace it x

  3. 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.

    1. WHOA! this actually motivated me to get up early, to own myself. Beautiful, thanks!

  4. 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.

    1. 5 AM! oh my !!! haha, yes, I have notices the aging doesn’t help!

  5. THIS! So true! I feel that i start to own the mornings myself in I get up early, plus it saves me having to rush things later. 🙂

    1. One day, I will wake up early, everyday hah!

  6. 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!

  7. I’ve always been up before sunrise… not for the worms but for the sunrise maybe. 🙂 I’m obsessed with the sky and my brain works best at that hour.

  8. […] which one is your favourite, sunset or sunrise? […]
