5:30 am

 

Oh the morning hours…

blurry quiet, hazy glee.

Yet I cannot hold onto them

when they begin to flee.

A pitter-patter, then a stomp

comes down the staircase landing

scurrying away the birds,

the mists of morning standing.

Even if family does not invade

the morning will still dissipate…

for I begin to flutter around

and set my hands upon the gate.

    I love both you and your dad’s poems! Your drawing is great too. Morning quiet is beautiful but being retired with the kids gone, I can admit that if I try to hang on to it for too long it just becomes boring and wasted as your dad says.
