Simple Thoughts to Self

 
First  
Before the morning quakes I rise  
To shake off reservations,  
My blurry eyes
To step into the shower,  
All steamed, to shave my legs.  

Second  
I wash my hair and wrap it tight  
In spite of the temptation,  
Thru’ window’s light  
As misty view uplifting,  
The perfect weather begs.  
 
Third  
A quiet smile that comes to me  
In restive contemplation,  
What shall it be  
My honey currant muffins,  
Or coddled soft-boiled eggs.  
 
Fourth  
No coffee, no caffeine today  
A fruit smoothly libation,  
A sunshine’s ray  
Is better than anything,  
Won’t light up powder kegs.  
 
Fifth  
But most of all you will agree  
Of all of God’s creations,  
It’s love you need  
As bells that tolled once upon,  
To clothesline wooden pegs.
