Monday morning

ticking of wall clock wakes me,
its rhythmic sound a reminder that 
every second, every minute is gliding by. 


alarm rings once, twice, (and thrice even)
admonishing me to follow my morning routine.   
i prepare breakfast of cold milk and wheat cereals, 
topped with blueberries and sometimes, sliced bananas.


house is quiet, this moment of peace is mine.
though the morning light is still very faint,  
i read poems and allow the words to inspire my thoughts, 
and take me into new journeys.   connected with myself,     


at 7:15 am, i grab my car keys, lunch bag and coat,
ready for my city drive 


another ordinary day, 
same road, same driving lane,
same scenery, same office destination.


feel very blessed this monday morning.

  5. Monday morning is one of the hardest time in the life of a human... The routine can do so that the human being forget the reason of his life...It's so difficult to find the poetry in routine, but you did! That's great!!!

  7. Grace, I enjoyed this glimpse into your ordinary life, which (thankfully) most of life is. The ticking of the wall clock does remind a person to savor each minute, I think. We can never regain the minutes that have passed. Like you, I read poems in early morning. I enjoy these peaceful times, and reading about yours.

  12. Taking the ordinary and the more mundane and giving it that special twist, there is something to just enjoying the life one has.

  19. your enthusiasm for your day started spilling over with 'and sometimes, sliced bananas.' the form worked that way too, i thought.
    that's a morning simple pleasure and joy i kin relate to.
