Heavy earth smell of coffee
stretches in the morning stillness
in a groggy sleep addled house
A dog’s impatient whine paces
the space between sleep and awake
becoming another element of your dream
An angry alarm shatteringly screams
As glassy dream fragments disappear
into layers of blind filtered sun
Drowsing dust motes lazily drift along
in morning stage’s momentary spotlight
bright stars swirling in a bedroom universe.
One thought on “Break of Day — A Poem about Waking Up”
Stopping by from the A to z challenge. Random blogs on the information superhighway. Wonderful what I have come across.
