Early Morning Riser

I am a night owl

Or the tired afternoon seagull

but definitely not the robin of the morning.

I like to sleep

and when I can not

I get grumpy.

Even the elixir of life for those who need it

no longer helps.

Coffee,

my once dear love

is now merely the chosen beverage of the morn.

Sometimes,

Just sometimes,

I awake and actually enjoy the rising sun.

Sometimes,

but most times

I do not.
