Didn't sleep real well, and so, I write ...

4:44 A.M.:  Nothing moving out in the
chill of night, except me getting the
paper and shutting the door quickly -
dang, it's cold out there.  No wonder,

36 degrees!  Still have a couple of
hours of dark left; the temperature
could fall another degree or 2.  You
know, some hot tea sounds good -

yeah.  Ahhhhhhhhhh.  Warms me up
inside, the heat, the out.  Surrounded
by comfort.  Nevermind the smoke -
too cold.  Oh, well.  Don't need it

anyway.  (I say that now ...)  All I
need is a cat to purr on my lap ...
I'd name her Muse.  Another reason
to write poetry early in the morning ...

then again, writers write at all hours,
even at the unGodly time of 4:44 A.M.!

(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (10/26)

Good cat moving around his body. Good poetry written at 4:44 a.m. Like you timed poems and enjoy them. Just you have so many it will take me time to read more. I so do enjoy your reviews to others though, and think you are a great Texan and a great person. We all have our sleepness nights and you do something productive with yours.

I had to read this poem when I saw the title... you know this has happened to me very often. Similar situations and, although I found it difficult not being able to sleep, I found some sort of peace in the silent hours between two and five in the morning and... inspiration!

I understand the state you were in :-)

Reviewed by Daniel McTaggart
That's one of the best times for writing, Karla! I always wrote then during my night shifts at the convenience store. Somehow, the sleepiness, however slight it may be, helps you think of things that might not come out during the day. I hope you'll try it again sometime. I really enjoyed this one!

Enjoyed a look into your poetic morning,Karla;-) I agree with Richard. I too wake middle of night when I write some of my better ones.

4:44 you are on my time schedule now, Karla, I am usually in the shower at that time getting ready for work. I have learned to love the solitude and peacefulness of those quiet hours when the world sleeps and the day seems to belong to only me. I am sorry to hear that you didn't sleep well, but I hope that you enjoyed those few minutes of tranquility when the world belonged only to you and your pen found its way to the page to leave this tale.
Take care,

This is like a poetic diary - now that is an original idea and one you might expound upon. I always wake up early and flop about for awhile and then go back to sleep and dream. It's weird but it never changes. Blessings to your dear Karla ...

Seems to be a lot of that going around the den, writing at the wee hours of the morning. If I were to do that, my husband would probably take my computer and throw it out [maybe even me]. lol

In the middle of the morn when all is quite and still, Karla observes her surroundings for her thoughts to fill, as she pens a poem so early in the morning.

ok you must be tired now :). 3-5 am is the spiritual hours, most people wake up between these times. Great well.

I was up at 4 myself this morning but that would be 5 AM your time. The wind chimes were making music and still are playing for the ducks and geese. Fall is in the air here in Florida too and a nice little chill it is this morning. You need to get a cat and name her Muse.

So true and for me those hours between 3 and 5 in the morning are usually the most fruitful as a the world sleeps so live I.

Strangely enough, I awoke this morning at exactly 3:10. And I had just watched the movie, 3:10 To Yuma the day before. Very odd, although the movie was very good. Write On - and a cat muse, is always very good!

Ps So sorry to see the terrible fires in Malibu...Boy can we relate to that sorrow, every year here, without fail.
Am just glad no one perished that I have heard, though the wildlife has suffered and so many are out of homes.
My thoughts have been with you all in that region.
HUGS againxxxxxx
