    In an casual cheerful morning a question what quirks of fate endear us to our choices pulls us towards deeper contemplation. Enjoyed the poem very much. (Report) Reply

    I really enjoyed this poem. Just waking up in the morning is good enough,

    Sheets of oblivion, a wonderful vivid account of that moment of bliss just before you get up. My poem New Day is similar. Very good write. (Report) Reply
