Friday morning

Friday Morning

Blue mug of London Fog
Black cat purrs and
contemplates biting
CBC Radio on low

Notebook on desk
with stationary pen
Heart too full of the dark
This dawn.


This post was created as part of the Poetry Friday challenge, hosted each week by a different poet.  Today’s host, Jone Rush MacCulloch, used a couple of lines from one of my favourite Edgar Allan Poe works as inspiration.  Please enjoy her lovely poems on her blog and visit the other Poetry Friday participants via the thumbnails at the end of the post.

  1. You have created strong images here. Heart too full of the dark is a hard reality. Sending you love.

  2. You could have written this poem for me and my morning tea, and our cat, who purrs while he “contemplates biting.”

  3. Nice to meet you, Karen! Like others, I think you capture the blue fog of a heart stopped by too much dark.
