Good morning World.

Damn you!
and your warm
sunray fingers
prying open my eyes.

Robbing me of my
nocturnal fantasies,
my semiconscious bliss.

Leaving the remnants
of my peace 
and tranquillity
laying scattered across
my face and through
my hair.

Your rising light
shrinking the shadows
of my freedom.

I will not be seduced
by your clear blue promises.

For your pressing realities
already taste foul
in my mouth.

Leave me Morning
to my diminishing serenity.

I have performed this piece and it shows on you tube (I hope this works, if not try copying to your address bar):

    I like to read a poets first to poem to begin my acquaintance. Morning seems appropriate. Don't have enough data stream to view the vid, darn.

    Scott, not knowing what I could comment to that I have not seen already, I finally went to see this one on the youtube, which I had not done previously (I think you misunderstood me before when I said I saw it through the link, I did not mean I saw the youtube. WOW, you really rocked this one. I just LOVE it. I hate the morning sun on me like that too. GREAT job on that video. I've gotta fave it now too!!

    when I saw this one before, I had seen it thru the link. Now I see it was your first poem posted here. So far my favorite too of all your poems (oh and the pee poem of course). So you are living down under? You lucky duck!!

    I absolutely started my Soup life with one of my best. Yes currently I live in New Zealand (oh and this place is beautiful), but as my wife reminded me today, in two weeks I will be living back home in Australia. Change is coming...

    I love this one too, looking through your "best poems" did you know Soup has assigned us lists of our best poems? It's such a cool feature. I too despise the morning. but lately I have not been able to sleep past 7 no matter what time I go to bed the night before.

    Thanks for watching the video. It was fun to make, and to watch. I am working on "Where the City Folk Live" at the moment. Hopefully it won't be too far. Would like to encourage all poets to make clips for their work.
