My Morning Ritual…

The sunlight shines through the shutters

And lifted my feet out of the bed

Just in time to hear the fading chirpings of birds

I have struggled to wake up

Long after the shrills of the alarm clock

Now, I must begin my morning rituals

With a steamy cup of tea

As I ruminate over the chaos in my mind

Myriads of thoughts fighting within me to jump out

Not a day to let them slide through my fingers

Not a day to be reluctant and sluggish

The blank pages must wear these new imprints

And decorated with the images before me

To ease this immense weight that I carry inside

I must obey this morning clarion call

Today I have a plan

This new script must breathe



Submitted for the Daily Prompt Tea.

Peace and Love!
