The sun slowly approached the sky,
peeking over the horizon, shy at first,
but quickly learning to blaze brightly.

The wind played with my hair,
curling and twisting it in the air,
moving just the way my body had been moving
only a few hours prior.

Another night has come and gone,
slipped out of grasp the way
smooth brown beer bottles slip out of drunken fingers –
loud and obvious but still
barely noticeable all the same.

Bed is calling my name.

Let the sun blaze away, shine in the spotlight
while I rest my weary head;
everybody needs a break once in a while.

I've never been drunk (actually never tasted beer), but have seen a lot of sunrises, and I really like the concept of a shy sun learn to blaze.

I love the way you used the words...and passed the message too. Staying in bed a little late some mornings is heaven...though I rarely get to do it these days

Not something I'm familiar with, but a very detailed poem.

Drinking definitely came to mind with this week's words for me but as I had another angle going already I incorporated the words into that.
I can remember many a college night from your poem though. Very nice.

No matter who we are, we all need take time out and just have a personal day. Not only do we need a physical break but also a mental break otherwise we'd go crazy. I love your poems.

I remember a few of those nights but couldn't have described it as well as you! Nice!

Nice poem, especially the first two stanzas. I thought of being on the beach all night, but I guess it could have been anywhere.

Love, love, love the third stanza. Great! :)

Sorry it took me so long to get around to reading this week: I was contemplating a boycott and I never read before I post my own :)
