bunny slippers Morning inspires me.  I don't know why, but there's something about quiet and sunrise and the birth of new day that delights and enlivens me.  Maybe that's explanation enough.

In any event, before I write anything else, I often write a few lines of verse to welcome the day.  Though I often share them on Twitter, I haven't recorded them elsewhere.  Thump on the head for ME!  To remedy that, my plan du jour is to stockpile 'em in a drafted post, and I'll publish it weekly (or more likely, when I remember šŸ™‚ ).  

Here's the first batch…and I'd love to hear your thoughts or verses in response!

 

Silence of morning

The sounds of sleep & early

Music to my ears.

* * * * *

Morning is breaking

Slowly I'm waking. Son to

school, I am taking.

{I can't decide whether to celebrate or revile the rhyme… :)}

 * * * * * * *

First thought of morning

Grateful, heart-felt praise:  thank you!

Each day is a gift

* * * * * * *

Morning's cup in hand

This day yet to be written

Brimming with promise

* * * * * * *

Stormy morning rain

Strobed lights, percussive music

a splashy tap dance
