Daily Prompt; The Golden Hour


6:00AM: the best hour of the day, or too close to your 3:00AM bedtime?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us DAWN.

Definitely mornings are my best. My sugars are down. I am sort of rested. I get up, put my slippers on, my house coat, scratch my leg, scratch my butt, and waddle into the bathroom where I plop myself on the toilet and smoke my first cigarette.

After looking at the face staring back at me I make my way to the kitchen where I pour myself my first cup of brew. Hot brew with cream, no sugar please. I check the cat food bowls over. Filling the food up, disposing the old, replacing with new water.

I check my time. Fifteen minutes before I get Al up. Scratch my butt one more time. Walk over to the window and look at the outdoor thermometer. Looking at the lower temperatures I shiver inside my clothing realizing summer is actually gone.

I take solace in the day. Sun is shining. Trees are partially covered, some are bare. Leaves covering once green grass. Aww, life is good, morning is new, then I waddle over to the computer, take a sip of coffee, light up another cigarette and get in those last few moments of checking out what my friends have to say.

Morning Has Broken

Feeling the breeze

Coming in my window

My eyes flutter open

To a new day

A splash of water

And thanks to God

Gives me knowing

I am in a new day                                                                             sun rising

Brush my teeth

Throw some

Clothes on

Start the coffee

Time to go                                                  http://youtu.be/e0TInLOJuUM

Wake Al.
