Howard Simon

Morning Man

Delivered from darkness
A great lover of the light
Rising extremely early
working with all my might

Others are still sleeping
While I am wide awake
Maximizing every moment
Energized from spiritual intake

In the day I make progress
Excelling in an excellent way
Following closely my plans
From my priorities never stray

I am a man of the morning
The Son shines in my heart

    This poem resonates with me. I do things early in the morning or before dawn.
    This is the time my mind is most productive.
    However, there are certain cases when we cannot wake up early due to some late appointments
    scheduled at nights.
    A great poem well executed.10++++

    Early to rise when others are sleeping and plan your activities and start your day is something which everyone look up to but due to late night work and technology interventions it is a dream like situation, a thought provoking poem, Congrats for Poet of the day.

    It's a nice poem. Obviously, a morning man makes more hay than others, while the sun shines.
    Loved these lines:
    'Others are still sleeping
    While I am wide awake
    Maximizing every moment
    Energized from spiritual intake'.....
