The ringing of the alarm,
Wakes me up from slumber deep.
I try to get up despite the bed’s charm,
Which makes me want to go back to sleep.
The rays of the morning sun,
Shine through my window.
As the gentle morning breeze,
Beckons me to go out for a run.
My laziness I cast aside,
As I put on my shoes and go for a walk.
This day, I got to take in my stride,
I say as I give myself a pep talk.
The empty roads greet me,
So different from the usual chaos.
I sense a wave of calm sweep over me,
As the beauty of the morning surrounds me.
I hear the chirping of the birds,
As the greet me to a lovely morning.
I look up to the fluffy, white clouds in the sky,
That tells me it is time for a new beginning.
The night may have been a stormy one,
But hope comes with the morning.
A new day has just begun,
The day is mine, I hear it calling.
As a part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018, Vinay and I have started this weekly prompt which we’ve decided to call as Wednesday Verses. Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. Please add your post links to the linky only if you have written for the prompt. We are happy to have you rhyme with us.
Prompt #17 is “Morning”
