Birthing poetry

Birthing poetry

A Poem by Gee
"

Early morning writing before work starts

"
A coffee cup that warms the hand
a pooch across his lap
the tick and tock of passing time
a single digit tap
that births the letters, words and verse
as poetry is born
whilst all sleep soundly in their beds
on an early summer morn'.

Thanks Neville
This "quickie" is very inspiring and, a lovely read! I too find the creative juices flow better in the early morning and, at times, in the late night right before bed. Of course, sometimes the inspiration comes in the middle of the day when a word or phrase strikes us in just the right way and, we have to do something with it. I truly enjoyed this quickie, Gee. Thank you, Temp

So sweet and lyrical Gee. Poetry chooses its own time to be born. Great rhythm, rhyme, and love that you included your pup in it!

I am well Gee & hope you are too. Hi Max- good boy!:))))
Nice one, G. I find myself up so early these days and feel I ought to write, but watch the telly. Readhing this may give me a lesson: I should be more hardworking.

Sometimes idle is best though too much telly will give you square eyes :)

I often tell myself I should rise early and write, exactly because of what you describe so well in this poem. Sadly, I am not a morning person. Obviously you are, and your work demonstrates the benefits.

Yes, that’s the way so many ordinary days start, yet each day is special and unique and you have captured that so well here.

Apologies for the late thank you :))
Thank you for dropping in
Maybe quick but a lovely little poem Gee. My muse has departed for a while now. Perhaps I just need to sit with a coffee like you and start tapping on the keyboard. Thanks for your suggestion
All the best
Alan.

A very decent single digit offering
Mine take place mostly at night when I can finally stop and flop
Whenever, it is an enjoyable pastime, as your poem indicates
