Slanting Lines


Fast asleep

dark night

dream deep

faint light

bird sings

growing bright

gadget pings

go away

sleep clings

break of day

brighter now

here to stay

morning glow

time to rise

feeling slow

rub eyes

yawn and stretch

blue skies

legs itch

must get on

first scratch

clothes on

spell broken

sleep gone

in motion

sun on skin

door open

breathe in.

Now begin.
