Poem 252 – Contemplations on Morning Choices

Contemplations on Morning Choices

What makes a morning body
Want tea instead of coffee?
Oatmeal instead of eggs?
Sleep instead of exercise?

These questions as I sip tea
Eat oatmeal while yesterday’s
Coffee and eggs hold protest
Signs in my thighs:
COFFEE IS BEST!
EGG-XELLENT CHOICE!

Exercise is rare in the morning
Poor choice is huddled out front
Behind the giant maple
And sleep

Sleep is a goddess in a throne on my head

*yesterday I numbered the poem incorrectly. it should have been 251. today’s poem is 252.
