I'm not naturally an early riser -
greet each day like a broody hen,
sip my coffee - almost begrudge
twittering, darting sparrows
Leisurely contemplate the light
as it hesitantly scans my yard -
impatient whines, thumping tails
imploring me to step out -
greet the day,
fresh air fills my lungs,

This is for my own challenge at the "Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - Artistic Interpretations - Maria Wulf's Visual Poems" which will be posted Friday morning at midnight (central daylight time). Maria Wulf is a fiber artist, "Full Moon Fiber Art" and has a link to her "My Visual Poems" on her blog header. I find them to be mini journeys (sometimes a bit surreal), snippets of images and sounds linked together offering impressions - all inspire and celebrate Maria's artistic view of the world - whether it is creating from found objects or just enjoying the land, the seasons.
The challenge is to watch and listen to the sounds of what you don't see, live in the moment, feel the emotions (or memories) they conjure and write about it in any poetic form you choose.
Come join me over at "The Garden".
I have also linked this poem with Friday Flash 55 - a story (or in my case, usually a poem) in 55 words. I invite you to come join the fun over there as well. Happy Halloween!
Here is a photo of me tonight ... I do not see what my family found so funny - for I AM a princess...
My youngest two really had fun. I really liked my daughter's "homemade" outfit - I thought she was a broken doll, she said she was a child serial killer ... Oh... Well, glad we had Captain America nearby then...
and we always carve pumpkins - my second oldest daughter (Headless Horseman) and husband (Dracula) had quite the competition going on this year... and neither one used a stencil!
