Morning sound

Morning sound

A Poem by Rudi J.P. Lejaeghere
"

I get up every morning and it's going to be a great day. You never know when it's going to be over so I refuse to have a bad day. Paul Henderson

"













I hear the morning

in the creaking of the bed

a cough, a yawn

the shuffle of slippers

in the hall

 

the coffee is boiling

from far away

with intervals it reaches

my consciousness

 

while outside the traffic

breaks the silence

the buzzing

of child voices

in my ear

 

the meowing

of two hungry cats

at the back door

and the softly calling

at the bottom of the stairway

 

breakfast is ready.

Thanks Rudi. Great visual, and the morning's are such a beautiful time of day to me. You're a lucky man to have breakfast waiting....But seriously, those aromas and sounds are a delight, nice to lie there a little and wait. Well done as always. Dale

love the morning - new beginnings and when you start to notice the beauty in each ritual - well even better ...

lovely imagery - replace the cats with my Cockerspaniel running mad all over the place and well we got ourselves the same ritual :) X
