Morning Missed


The night was restless; I forgot to set my alarm and got up late.  Remnants of mist lingered in the air.  It was undoubtedly glorious earlier, but now, the sun was far above the horizon. 

You don't get overs on mornings.




I missed a misty morning as I lay asleep in bed
Bright rays, the trees adorning, streamed through my dreams instead.




A rabbit ate the meadow rue, from what I ascertain
The only bunnies in my view hopped 'round inside my brain.




The droplets on the new-mown lawn were diamonds, so I'm told
But all the treasures of the dawn were someone else's gold.




In dreams I held some butterflies, but dreams I cannot keep
I missed a misty sunrise as I lay there fast asleep.




Linking with Saturday's Critters

Nicely captured in words and images. Although I'd like to experience more mornings, it's just not in my nature.

Have a wonderful week (with perhaps and early morning or two).
