Peeks through shade, cracks open
An eye. Yawn and stretch out of bed
How the dawn greets me cheerily
Rise and shine sleepy head
Roll over – shun
NaPoWriMo Prompt – Today’s (optional) prompt springs from the form known as the aubade. These are morning poems, about dawn and daybreak. Many aubades take the form of lovers’ morning farewells, but . . . today is Monday. So why not try a particularly Mondayish aubade – perhaps you could write it while listening to the Bangles’ iconic Manic Monday? Or maybe you could take in Phillip Larkin’s grim Aubade for inspiration (though it may just make you want to go back to bed). Your Monday aubade could incorporate lovey-dovey aspects, or it could opt to forego them until you’ve had your coffee.
No lovey-dovey aspect for Monday even after my coffee. Time to eat the egg salad. 😀
