MORNING


Morning has broken
Chirping birds,humming bees.
Sunlight filtering in
Sound of the Alarm
Soft touch of a hand
Eyes will not open
Just want to sleep

Thoughts of running late
I climb out of bed.
Shower and dress
Hot cup of coffee
My morning begins.

On the road again
Music interrupted,
Sounds of sirens, ambulance
People crying, holding hands
Someones life taken.
The morning had just begun
Nitefall will never arrive.

Excellent poem Starry. Very simple and realistic. Your choice of words too are very simple and yet a very nice outcome to the entire thing. :)

You say : "People crying holding hands / Someones life taken."

Yes, on the other part of this globe someone has been killed by fellow human being. Surely these killings are not fictional.

No more cheers, no more tears.

Contented 2:06 AM  

Very well written about reality of life every one of us live in...Thanks for sharing it with us.

Rose 6:30 AM  

Amidst the crowdy streets and muddy roads,
the flashy houses and the dull lives,
the hot heads and the cold hearts,
somewhere amidst these busy worlds..
I stumbled over life..
