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.


my once dear love

is now merely the chosen beverage of the morn.


Just sometimes,

I awake and actually enjoy the rising sun.


but most times

I do not.
