Darkness Arising

As autumn arrives and mornings grow dark
I struggle to get out of bed
When I hear the alarm, I press the ‘snooze’
And pull the duvet up over my head

The alarm sounds again, I switch it off
Turning over for five more mins
Until some time later I’m rushing around
Late for work, because I’ve slept in!

This never occurs in the summer
When I’m up, out of bed, with the larks
So why do I find it an arduous task
To do the same, when mornings are dark?

    I'm retired until I decide to go back to work. Maybe in the Spring. My husband supports us and I do quite well gambling. I stay up late all seasons and get up when I wake up. Nice huh? I play Scrabble and write on the computer after watching tv with my hubby or going out. Ellen

    Hi Janette, Can I ever relate to these sentiments. Living in Alaska, It seems with the shorter days all winter I have a tendancy to want to stay in bed longer too under my snug down comfortor. Truly enjoyed! Thanks for sharing your amazing poetry and for you lovely comments. Keep writing and I'll keep reading, smile. Love Light Truth Patty

    Some people have SAD that effects them when there isn't enought sunlight. A special kind of light will help. Sometimes our bodies are in tune to the sun and moon more than we know. Interesting topic that you have choosen with coming fall and winter. Keep writing. Sara
