morning

MORNING 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): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egYjy4Iu5e8&feature=youtu.be enjoy

Scott, such an awesome poem! You have aptly put into your graceful lines of poetry what I think and feel in the morning.. your first three stanzas, especially, I can completely relate to. A sparkling, beautifully expressed and enthralling write! Warmest wishes ~Susan

Scott, this is an excellent piece. The brightness of morning wakes me up too early. Can't sleep in for the life of me. Thanks for the read. *S* Cynthia

Hello Scott. This was fabulous. I did click on the video. It came through. Your words are so true. I think we all second your words and thoughts. If only we can stay within our dreams and sleep. Well done entirely.

I can't believe I haven't read your first poem before now. This was a tremendous first offering to the soup Scott.

Hi Scott, I'm the morning monster most definitely. I can't complain though, too early and i just turn over and fall asleep again. Hell everyone tells me it would take a cannon to wake me up. Can't watch the video Scott, since i went 10 you tube is up the spout. Tried going bacl to 8:1 still no dice. Anyway Scott great write for your first post....Vladislav.

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!!

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.

Thank you for your attempt to watch this piece. I have also posted this poem in "High Critique", where the link to you-tube is much easier. I'm glad you enjoyed the written version, and again thanks for taking the time.
