Its 7am

Its  7 am and the morning sun  whispers greetings to my waking ears  I arises from my sleep and wonder at the day and its offerings  My cats  two in all keep vigil by the window for killer birds or dangerous  dust bunnies  The coffee has finished its creation and awaits for me to stumble it into a mug  and fumble it to its new destiny  The sky scrappers of Toronto  seemed to be growing  like cement flowers from tender soil  Each, stands in testimony of  being closer to the buck yet the morning softens the  endeavour I am content that all  is as it was meant to be watching the morning  watching me

How very delightful your morning poem is, easy flowing and quite discriptive. I could smell the coffee, feel the liesurely mode and enjoy the view. Thank you for sharing. Lora

"arise" instead of arises, unless it's cockney. Otherwise a poem entertaining in its imagery with the warmth of day in an easily associated routine. Where "less is more". Liked it. JCH

The last verse completes your poem - contentment found in the morning is such a positive way to start a day. Your first three verses introduce this piece with a nice easy flow of chosen words that find their impact where you have used wonderful imagery to show the unfolding day. I have to say for myself personally the fourth verse stands out in imagery - it has a wonderful line with sky scrappers that compare in beauty to flowers standing tall - All in all a good read - Deni
