Waking up early

at five-fifty-five.

I rock on my porch

as the forest comes alive.


The birds sing softly

as a deer strolls along.

Olive Oil is lurking

in search of her throne.


The sky is outlined

with tree tops so high.

Colors dapple through

to announce the sunrise.


I hope everyone

has a good day.

Please, don’t forget,

take time out to play.
