Light Arising

“Rise and shine. Hit the deck,”

Daddy’s wake up call,

 rings in memory today.

I arise but fail to shine.

Maybe later, but right now,

it’s all I can do not to growl.

That thought though,

does bring a grin.

My light already is less dim.

  1. My dad’s wake up call was similar: Rise and shine, it’s hard but it’s fair; you had a good life but you wouldn’t stay there. That does make me grin. 🙂 I think it was an army wake up call – not necessarily appropriate for two little daughters.
