Get up with the lark

For RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #117, the word prompts were ‘lark’ and ‘rush’. These words made me think about my new routine of going to sleep before midnight (10.30pm to 11.30pm to be exact), so that I could get up early in the morning to make tea or coffee, and a healthy breakfast. Today, I started the day with nice hot cinnamon tea to wake up the digestive system, followed by a bowl of natural unsweetened yogurt with banana, raw almonds, raw walnuts and chia seeds. All in time to go to work at 7.00am. So getting up early with the lark is good, indeed.

Get up with the lark

Get up with the lark
Enjoy the sunrise; brew tea
Take your time; don’t rush
