Mosaic: On Missing the Morning


She described the morning as 
misty,
          dewy,
                    and delighted in its freshness. 
Drowsy
         from 
                  dreams

her waking filled with,
pastel clouds,
                       bright flowers,
                                               breeze-filled trees,
and joyous birdsong. 

She saw, felt,
                     heard 
                             and smelt
                                             the wondrous day.
2.
He described the morning as,
too
      early -- don’t rouse him.

Keep  the 
                curtains drawn
                                    and 
                                         leave him slumber.

Not for him the
                    morning freshness,
                                              morning beauty
                                                                or another dancing day.  
 Tell the twittering
birds to stop the noise --  just go away.

He 
     prefers
                 descent 
                             into the sard of sleep to
                                                                  dream 
                                                                            and dream again,

the dreams of only sleep.

    Lovely descriptions and a great contrast of perspectives of the same "moment". The rich potential of the day, against the humdrum banality of everyday existance. Nice write!

    Love it. The contrast of life viewed through a poet's dreamy eyes, and the eyes of a practical realist. I will take the dreamy vision.
