Donations are essential to keep Write Out Loud going    

Something a little more formal!

In the half-light


We were supposed to wake in half-light,

Before the breaking of the dawn,

At the dying of night time and birthing of the morn.


Our eyes crave a moment of adjustment

In which to recalibrate,

As sub-conscious cogs turn and internal switches flick back to early, from late.


We weren’t designed to rise in darkness,

Our sleep should not be disturbed by interrogating beams,

Which return us to a bright-mare, from the soothing glow of dreams.

Mark, I agree. Totally unatural but necessary I guess in this age, I awake to the tune of the happy toymaker each morning! Winston

I sympathise... but you should invest in one of those things that gradually fills the room with light. Also, why people choose to wake themselves up with sudden loud bleeping alarm clocks is just as much of a mystery...
