Early Rising

Mornings are getting darker…
The reminder couldn’t be starker
That summer is fading
(And so am I)
There’s really no point in trying to deny
A pathological need for sleep
In order for my soul to keep
A modicum of decency
(I struggle at times- believe you me…!)
Crawling back beneath my rock
Not so much for taking stock
As simply craving peace and calm
And trying to avoid the damned alarm.
