My Time.

This is my time,

A time when words are read,

A time when words are written,

And the realities of life do not exist.

These first two hours are special,

So special to me.

The worries in my world are forgotten,

For such a brief time.

I am lost in a world of music,

I am lost in a world of words.

This time is so precious

But all too soon it is over

And the reality of my world

Drags me into the day.

But my time will return,

Return tomorrow,

Return every morning.

                An awesome writing. So serene feeling of happy solitude. I always begin my mornings with a cup of black coffee, half arepa, and a banana. Then of for my 30 min jogging 🏃 before I start working. Today I had to run from the rain. I have a nice day ahead. I can never be so organized. My days are what they are. Love to live and read poems.thanks for sharing a piece of your day.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thank you malubotelho.

                  • myself and me

                    I shall create my own time too. Good job.

                  • burning-embers

                    Thanks Goldfinch. I dont feel much like reading sentimental shlurrp poetry at the moment and i knew yours would be something different because you have a wonderful way of bringing something special out of everyday life observations. Like therapy for me just now. Excellent.

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Thank you so much b-e, I am glad I can help in some small way.

                    • FredPeyer

                      Great writing, great idea. I wish I could be like you, but it takes me about an hour after I get up, just to get my mind working. Some people are wide awake right away, others like me do take time to get going. I like to have time for myself before going to sleep.

                      • Goldfinch60

                        As long as you can find time for yourself it does not matter when it is. Thanks Fred.
