zird is the word [userpic]
I love sleeping in. In fact, 'love' is really not a strong enough word for the pleasure I derive from simply not having to get out of bed on any given morning. You can judge my enthusiasm for my job by the fact that I prefer to get up early each weekday morning to go do it rather than turning over, slapping the off button on the alarm with a flailing hand and burrowing back into my pillow. I'm not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination, but I do believe in starting off each day on the right side of the bed. As a writer, here's a poem I recently found which is my new morning song of inspiration.

What you should do each morning
by Robin Mellor

Peel back the curtains from your eyes,
throw off the covers from your tongue.
Stretch your words out along the verandah
and greet the fresh morning.

Open the windows of chance.
Let the light breeze of something happening
blow through the cobweb corners of your head,
the dusty stairs of thinking.

Eat from a deep bowl of ideas for breakfast,
take a large speckled wish
with fingers of buttered dawn birdsong.

Pull a poem on to each foot, wear
a painted shirt and symphony waistcoat.
And in your shoes soled with imagination
go out and meet the day.

Love this weeks poem.

Dammit! The dog got into the ideas last night and now there's only partially chewed slimy ones left!

Oh and also? My ideas don't stay crunchy in milk.

It doesn't say to pour milk on them, silly! :D *snap crackle poem!*

I love Poetry Thursday and this was really wonderful. *smile*

I like that poem! I like to sleep as well. I've always been a napper and it makes me sad that I don't have time for them now. When I was a kid my mother never had to tell me when to take a nap or go to bed, I went all by myself.

My mom had to tell me to put the book down and turn out the light!
