And Your First 30 Minute’s

Alarm clock (sigh)
Perfect Persian pouncing (ouch)
Last night’s mess
Dog stretches
Rocking chair a waits

Perfect cup of coffee
Darken shy, billowy clouds
Slivered moon
Tepid air, soft breeze
Massive majestic tree’s

Crowing rooster
Spider tidbits
Hoot Owl
Wild dogs
Crickets sing

Second perfect cup of coffee
City light’s
Humming of man made devices
Weather report
Wear’s my cloths?
Out of milk
Washer off track and (NO) laundry soap

Third perfect cup of coffee
Trash day (yuck)
Lunches out the door
Dishes await
Kitty kisses
Computer hum
Passions here I come

Good morning

By, Cerenity

By all means add to this perfectly normal morning,

"God doesn't have to be reminded that we exist.
We have to be reminded that He exist!"

Perfect morning's just begun
when sitting under rising sun
that rises just to greet YOUR face
and take you up in warm embrace

and there is not a morning rare
that I don't take a moment to stare
into the face of moments to be
and greet each with humility

wonder of folks I've not yet met
except for the wonder of Internet
so it's no surprise that my computer resides
by a window, so that He may look inside

and be with me, and with you
to follow us the whole day through...

[Oh Cerenity...not to compare with yours, but look at what you did!]

Cerenity, loved this.  Alot can happen in the first 30 minutes of our day.  And you describe it so well.  I'll add some later on (at work now and no computer at home).  

Sunshine, loved your work as well.  Absolutely beautiful, both of you.

No alarm clock ringing here
Just four big dogs in my face so clear
Jumping on the bed to start my day
Cmon Mom get up lets play

No coffee for me cant stand the stuff
Tea or juice in my coffee cup
One last toss of the ball and its shower time
If im quick I can even get on line

Watching the clock gotta go gotta run
Bye now folks its sure been fun

(from some time back)
Wake Up Shower

It's 5 AM
Climb out of bed
Bent over - erect
To bath, half awake
Sit back for release
Tip pushed down
Turn on shower
To Kitchen for OJ
Swallow vitamin
Brush teeth
Still half conscious
Step in shower
Life begins again
Almost immediately
Dream returns
Tilt head back
Hair wet - shampoo
Your hair I'm washing
Your scalp I'm kneading
Your hair I'll be combing
Long rinse
Soap arms
(Aren't yours softer?
Shoulders, Chest
(Should be yours)
Scrub back - (yours again)
Soft pubes - Oh yes!
Eyes closed
Feel you close
Loud truck on street
Reverie blown
Soap legs, rinse
Get out
Day begins

I really enjoyed C - thank you

Sounds like you are the calm in the eye of the storm---I think you live up to our name much better than I, my serene sister!!!!  Enjoyed this one very much.

Smiling here .... what a wonderful way to start my morning Cerenity, I really enjoyed this verse!  Grateful it's a Saturday today, and I get a little more time to play.

Now about all these critters you've got!!!  I bow in admiration for your menagerie of furry and feathered friends, for I've had: Beaker the cockatiel, Sheba the cockatoo and Piggy the Guinea Pig (all at the same time), then Misty the German Shepherd, followed by Kramer the GreenWinged Macaw, and finally ... Lacey the Australian Shepherd.

How on earth do you do it all at the same time with 2 teenage girls and a husband!?!?!

I applaud you!!! Loved this poem, have a great morning Cerenity!  

Best wishes,
