Morning Routine

The blaring sharpness of the alarm sounds

Under the grey blue of the morning light 

One more minute, I mumble 

The chirpy melody continues 

With immense speed

I dash toward the desk 

Eyes filled with sleep 

Grab the phone 

Quick

Swipe

Joyous peace and quiet 

I tumble back into bed

The warmth of the blanket enveloping

However 

Sleep has evaded me 

I peek over the blanket at my phone

Check 

Emails

Check 

Instagram 

Check 

Facebook

Check 

Emails 

Again 

Frustrations mounts 

Anxiety sneaks its way into 8am 

Abruptly 

I get out of bed

Where is Be? 

Slowly I creep into the loft 

Oh there he is

Staring straight at me at landing one 

My sweet Be 

I quickly descend

Ruffle his head fur 

Kisses and snuggles ensue 

Then onward to the kitchen 

Open fridge 

Brita 

Out 

Water 

I shuffle over to the cabinet 

Automatic hands 

Take vitamins. 

My day has begun.
