In the early morning I sit awake in

total silence it feels as if I am the only one awake.

But I know all over the world I am not alone

night workers, mothers, elderly the worried.

We form a tribe of folk who choose or have no choice,

we sit or lie and gradually listen to

the birds slowly waken and begin their

chorus, the street lights flicker and die and

finally there is stirring.

Cars start to drive past , the heating whirs to life and

Slowly the day begins.

  1. Beautifully written Viv. I think if you choose to be awake at that time then it is the best part of the day – so peaceful… but not so much the case if you’ve struggled to sleep.
