dVerse Quadrille #158: Morning – Beat the Heat

no alarm needed

outside early in the morning

joyfully playing with Annie

then escaping my thoughts doing yardwork

continuing until exhaustion overtakes me

attempting to accomplish something

even if only to keep my mind at peace

I wager with time to let me finish

It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub, and Linda Lee Lyberg asks us to write a 44-word poem with the prompt word morning.
