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!

  1. Beautiful poetry. In my opinion, mornings are the best part in a day.Chirping of birds, soothing daylight make the day more serene. Entire day becomes yours. You can plan and spend it the way you want.If you are an early riser, then you will agree with me.

    1. Thank you, Moumita. Your remarks mean a lot to me. And so true, mornings are the best part beause you can sculpt your day as you want it. It’s always a new day to refocus. 🙂
