Morning Light

The gift of dawn I often fight, hiding from the morning light
which silently slips beneath the darkest shades contrite.

Raising my lashes, caressing my cheek, warm on silken sheets,
a divine stretch arches my back, as the morning light I greet.

Footfall meet a sheepskin rug which cushions arch and searching toes,
arms over head, I stretch again, and find a blue terry-cloth robe.

Down miss matched stairs I tread with care to the purr of Smokey cat,
tuna for him, tea for me, a friendly cuddle and a tete-a-tete.

Then out I go, onto the back porch, to an ancient wooden chair,
to welcome the day watching morning birds in the summer air.

    Oh, how lovely! This sounds like my former life, before Monkey-girl, cat and all. I am thinking about writing for this 'test but if I stay true to what my mornings are like, it will a negative image to yours! LOL! I occasionally get 5 mins to myself-- and THAT is bliss. Now, back to you. LOVE LOVE LOVE your rhyme scheme, its sophisticaiton. I DO hope this places way up there. :-( You made me miss my plump kitty who thought herself a lap dog and whose purr drowned out the garbage truck Soupmail
