THE EARLY HOURS

A car thumps by, outside on the rain spattered road;
youngsters, I think and smile.
My dogs, snoring in ecstatic little grunts,
make this room smell of biscuits,
I don’t mind, it’s rather nice.
Beneath my fingers a conversation almost happens,
with a clever boy in London.
As you age, it is said,
you need less sleep.

They each have a perfectly good basket to sleep in, surely this can’t be too comfortable?

      Joggers, cyclists, the Scusi staff getting the bacon ready …

    1. theonlycin says:

      We’ll have to see how long Lulubelle will tolerate it 🙂

    Enjoyed the visualization. About the 8-legged biscuit breath – you are not close enough to the baskets. The chair is near you, I bet!

    1. theonlycin says:

      I don’t get it at all, the chair and baskets are at equal distance to me. Maybe they just want to be at eye-level 🙂

  3. Adeeyoyo says:

    That should be interesting… Lovely picture in both words and photo!

    1. theonlycin says:

      It’s quite amazing how Lulubelle’s maternal side has emerged since Diski’s arrival; she was never like that with Fritzl 🙂

  11. Naomi says:

    Love this post, Cin, such beautiful words & pic!! Our puppies insist on cuddling almost all the time. Too adorable 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      They’re so peaceful in the pic, you don’t want to see when they’re in ‘chase’ mode; things fly and crash 🙂

  12. forpuck says:

    I really liked this. There’s a lightness to it, and it drew me in.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Anton, great to make your acquaintance.

  13. gospelwriter says:

    Loved this – snapshot moments at the start of a day. The photo is quite amazing!

    Beneath my fingers a conversation almost happens,
    with a clever boy in London.

    …a teaser, that.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Well … I got on Skype just a few minutes too late, he’d already signed off 🙂

  14. Lyndatjie says:

    LOL…. reminds me of the kids fighting about who would be sitting in front! Guess in this case – both won…. *grin*

    1. theonlycin says:

      lol, for the moment they both won … going to be very interesting seeing how it pans out 🙂

  15. BFG says:

    sounds like a very nice moment… succinct and delightful!

  16. slpmartin says:

    The photo was just darling…love the words you match to the photo and the snapshot of early morning there.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thank you Charles, and here I am again, keeping company with the rooster’s confusion about the early hour 🙂

  17. klrs09 says:

    Wonderful poem, Cindy, as always.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks so much 🙂
      Just morning meanderings really…

  18. opoetoo says:

    I remember this poem but not that funny picture.

    Dogs have different ideas about comfort.

    I do love the poem and was glad to see it again.

  19. Jamie Dedes says:

    Lovely little poem. Cozy … and the dogs … are just darling.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Aren’t they just?
      Make me laugh often during the day 🙂

  20. Tokeloshe says:

    Well done!

    What a fantastic photo!

    Hugs to Lulubelle, such a cutie.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I think the bird will soon resemble an ostrich, that’s large-breed dog food it’s eating 😀

  21. A delightful moment early morning. Love your thoughts and words too.
