An Extended Moment

An Extended Moment

 

The illuminated clock face starts winding the internal talk,

“So much to do… Remember… Don’t forget…”

The concave pillow suddenly feels uncomfortable,

The blankets too warm,

And I limp out of bed

Stagger to the kitchen counter,

Find and push the button,unconsciously, by touch alone

Stand, Hypnotized by the swirl of coffee into the cup,

The smell of caffeine promising life will follow.

Rain splashes across the headlines, the driveway and my future.

  1. Wow. Just wow. I love that in capturing this moment of your morning, I see the reflection of many of my mornings, especially in your last two lines.

  3. Could be my morning, except I push the button, then go take a shower. The coffee is ready when I am clean!
