Morning is guided

by alarms and stopwatches

living by increments

of fifteen or thirty

time to breathe

or time to think

time for coffee and a pause

minutes for health

and moments to create

before the buzzer sounds

structured in seconds and minutes

and hours

the days blur into one

while human nature longs

to follow the seasons

and dance to the rhythm

of different clocks – Caroline A. Slee
