Early morning

Cranes its head over the wall of the world

Looking for me, but

I am still

Pillow blind within the


Embrace of night

    I wish I was pillow blind most days, instead I think I'm the one peeking over the edge anymore. Wonderful word choices :)

    I like the way you've personified early morning, like a friend coming to see if you can play. Or a nosey neighbour.

    The poem captures the serene moment of morning beautifully. It's a reflection on the stillness before embracing the day.

    You've nailed the brief and conjured a sympathetic persona at once. Nice work!
