Pensieve's Poetic License Challenge
Go to Robin's blog to check out this month's poetry challenge and for an explanation of the challenge and the form.
Here's my try.
The Day Begins
The early morning sun peeks through the window sill,
The light flickering just enough
To cause the cat to stir from his still
Quiet place; as I cough
He yawns and stretches before sauntering away.
I close my eyes again, shutting off
The source of the light as it grows into day.
He returns, nudging me, urging me to rise
And let him out to go his way.
I resist but finally open my eyes
To the silent beginning of these early moments.
I open the door, giving in to his cries;
He runs out to the backyard jungles between the fences
And I return to my place of rest to bask again in the silence.
