Good Morning – A Quadrille
Sleep slinked away like a thief in the night
In the wee hours of the morning
countless sheep filled a head
waiting for dawn to break
With it came brightness and clarity
A palette of blazing orange
with whisps of grey brushing the sky

Reading this poem is almost like enjoying a painting, Christine!
Thank you David. Thats so kind ☺️💕
I know the relief of dawn after a nights tossing and turning.
Oh me too! 😳❤️
Nicely done, Christine, especially the simile ‘sleep slinked away like a thief in the night’. For me too, morning brings ‘brightness and clarity’ – and I love autumn mornings especially.
Thank you. I appreciate it very much. I am still loving summer mornings for as long as I can 🌞💕
A beautiful, pictorial imagery.
Thanks dear Sadje ☺️💕
On those nights morning can never come soon enough.
Oh how I hate sleepless nights 🥱 The morning view can certainly jump start anyone’s day though! 🌞
The brightness and clarity morning brings is truly a daily miracle, enjoyed this! 🌞
Thanks Tricia! ☺️💕
My pleasure, Christine! ❣️
