The Top Ten Reasons I Love Waking Up

(For the Top Ten Contest)

Number ten would be the sunshine
peeking through the blinds.

Nine would be the birds calling
exclaiming o’er worms they find.

The eighth is the knowledge that
I have a full day ahead of me.

Seven is the mat beckoning
for Yoga - to help me be free.

The sixth reason is how I manage 
to crawl out from the sheets.

The lure of fresh coffee and breakfast
a banana, or Cream of Wheat.

Five is brushing away the 
fuzzy morning breath that lingers.

Four is watering my plants and
checking the soil with my fingers.

And the top three reasons morning
is an easy time for me to greet.

Are all because of you, my love
for with you each morning I meet.

Three is your smile, always ready.
Two is your touch, always loving.

And the number one reason I
find the promise of morning so moving:

Are your beautiful, sparkling, radiant
and wonderful, captivating, deep
soulful green eyes that so easily 
pull me from the seductive land of sleep.

    T.L. - nice, creative write. Interesting use of the rhyming couplets. I like the way the last three are all kind of wrapped up into one. Nicely done. Joe
