A little past dawn
Light invites itself
Feeling the stare
my eyes open
only to realize
night has bid farewell
getting out of bed
and the biting cold
when toes touch the floor
I pull the covers over my head
Bodies warm and cozy
A duet, all snuggly
lying next to my hubby
Daybreak can wait
I’m not willing

I am so glad you’re feeling better, Lauren!! Don’t “over-do”, okay! God bless you today. xxxooo
Thanks, Caddo, I’m feeling human again! Yay! Now, I’m playing catch up all over again! 🙂 Have a great day! xx
I love this poem! Great use of the senses, and love your phrasing of “Light invites itself” – wonderful word choice here. Your imagery is wonderful, and allows the reader to feel the moment; very well done! ~ Julie 🙂

Glad you’re feeling better. It is always good to get a lie-in in the morning, especially when it is cold.
Thanks, Joe, and yes, it is! 🙂

What a lovely way to spend the morning — snuggling. I don’t blame you for wanting to stay in bed.
Thanks, Sandra! 🙂 Hugs!
I love this one, Lauren! It hits right at home with me…Like every winter morning. Thank you for writing and sharing this!
Hope you feeling better now.
Hugs, Deb xx
Thanks so much, Deb! And thanks for all your well wishes! We’re all better now! Yay! xx
Unlike some of us who just bound out of bed to great the day with a smile and a song! NOT.
I have those days, too, Russell! 🙂
lovely…and i love your page’s header picture. 🙂
Thanks so much and the header is from our wedding, almost 23 years ago~ 🙂
Glad you decided to stay under the covers a little longer. Such a warming, loving poem! 🙂

One could almost feel jealous …
Great poem. I can relate.
Thank you and I’m glad you can relate, too! 🙂
Hi, I’ve nominated your blog for The Versatile Blogger Award! 🙂
Thanks so much, Maryanne! I’m honored you thought of me! Please allow me some time to follow through, okay? Thanks again! 🙂
Awwww, this is just sweet. Thank you for sharing this warm little gem, Lauren. What a magical moment in life captured so wonderfully
Thank you, VW! 🙂
Very polished, completed morning poem here, Lauren. When you said “I felt the stare” I thought of my four legged family members staring at me demanding silently to go outside, no matter the cold! The ending makes me want to snuggle again, even though I am in an office!
Thanks, Rose, and I miss my four-legged family member! But, I think in the next couple of months, we’ll be looking for a new companion; not to replace Lucky Girl, but to add to our canine memories~I wish I could stay in bed, but off to work we all go! Hugs!
Lovely imagery, I hate getting out of bed in the morning.
Something feels so good when you stay in bed when you are not supposed to, it’s a feeling that can’t be replicated
Thanks, Andrea, and you’re right; it feels too good to get out! 🙂 xx
this piece is so sweet, what a lovely way in spending morning, have a lovely morning today…
Thanks so much! May I call you Willo? I appreciate your continued support and will visit you soon. I feel like I’m always playing catch up for some reason! Have a wonderful day! 🙂
Rah!!! savoury… I love it! :0
Thanks, BG! 🙂
this is one of the shortest, but best parts of the day
Awww…thank you so much; I’m glad you enjoyed this one! 🙂 I’ll be over your way soon, too!
Beautiful poem. 🙂 …and a welcoming morning indeed.
Thank you so much and for your visit! 🙂
I love this poem. Check out the poem Morning’s Song on http://www.originalpoetry.org, I think that you’d like it!
Thanks, Marco! I loved yours, too, and commented on your blog. I’m glad you shared with me…we both wrote from different perspectives, but both enjoyable~
Lovely, Lauren. 🙂
Thanks, Tim! 🙂
