Free Verse: Rise and Shine Monday

In this free verse poetry, “Rise and Shine Monday!”

The weekend was grand. I didn’t want it to be over. Fun and festivities of summer. Some Mondays are harder to get up and get motivated. But I must rise and shine with the sun! Good morning beautiful peeps, hope this Monday finds you well!

Rise and Shine Monday

Rise and Shine Monday!

Didn’t want to wake this 6:30 am.
Eyelids, lulled with a romantic dream.
I wanted to stay there.
A demanding alarm clock rings upon eardrums.
It was time to get up.
Warming yellow fingers stretch across pillow tops.
I stretch and yawn.
Dew and dust fought for placement.
Fragrance filtering through the open window.
Poignant lavender lilacs from next door.
So strong it is. Nose burns with delight.
Tiredness hung to my bones like wet draping blankets.
Should have gone to bed earlier.
Furry beast sails into the air.
Landing licks upon waking faces.
Wished he’d brought me coffee instead.
Rise and shine Monday morning!
