I could tell you that the amber sunset
Is enough for my eyes to pry themselves awake
Every morning,
Could tell you that the saccharine coos of birds stretching their wings
Are the sweetest alarm clocks I've ever heard.
I could tell you that the bitter coffee in my ladybug mug
Make my yawns subside.
I could tell you,
'It's the simple things that make early mornings worth it for me',
