Early-ish Bird

This was inspired by the Weekly Scribblings about early birds and/or night owls. I’m definitely a morning person, though the last few mornings have been difficult because of the time change.


By the time the birds tweet in the morning,
I prefer to open my eyes and climb
Out of my own nest of blankets, stretching,
Although the warmth of blankets feels sublime.
Otherwise, I feel like I’m wasting time.
I am not chipper at seven o’clock,
Yet always rise by then, to day unlock.

  1. Aha, one of those early risers I envy. I wish I could turn my biological clock around. It’s often 3 or 4 a.m. before I fall asleep! Loved the poem, by the way.

  2. I love mornings, but I also like to sleep in (my nest of blankets). Funny enough, on vacation (traveling) I often get up to see the sun rise…
