Renew Your Spirit Sunday with an untitled poem

I wrote this poem recently and would like to share it today. Poetry is a good way to renew your spirit and find connections with the world around you. Enjoy!

an untitled poem by the Coffee-stained Writer

alarm clock
crack of dawn
big yawn
coffee drip
don't trip on the
hall rug
damn cat
blouse is pressed
get dressed
keys in hand and
out the door
in once more for
a forgotten file
toddler smiles
one more wave
"You two behave!"
in the car
country road
for an hour or so
meeting 1
meeting 2
coffee break
take a call
work through lunch
watch the clock
coffee break
out the door
file in hand
watch for deer
in the dusk
big hugs
big meal
time for bath
say your prayers
here's your bear
story read
and in bed
quiet moment
space to breathe
leave the dishes
'til tomorrow's
alarm clock
crack of dawn


  1. I just read it aloud. I love the rhymes, the rhythm and the images. I can actually see everything you're doing, and sense how busy your day must be. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. Thank you, Martin. The sound and rhythm of it was a big focus as I wrote it. I don't usually pay that close attention to the sounds of the words, so it was a bit of an experiment for me. I'm glad you liked it.
