Warming up for Dew Drop-in April Poetry Challenge
Warming Up to the Day

I start my day drinking a cup
Of hot coffee come what may
I like to warm up
To the dawning day.

I start by getting up at dawn,
Then while reading my emails and biking two k
while brewing up my coffee, my nightmares are soon gone,
looking at my Facebook messages turns my mood grey.

Then I turn on CNN, watch the news,
While doing my dream journal prewriting,
draft poems, stories, writing com writing.
Following my ever creative muse.

I wake up my wife
The love of my life
And want to play
Discussing our plans for the day.

Have my morning breakfast
usually a smoothie, or kefir.
My homemade breakfast gives me much pleasure
just like in my private bed and breakfast.

Turning off the news,
Turning on music, listening to the blues
about 11 a.m., I start my day
Ready for whatever comes my way.

After finishing my “me time” warm-up
I am ready to press on
That is the way
I like to warm up to the day.

It is not warming up where I live, but, sadly, getting colder again. And now building up to a thunderstorm. Aauugghh!

But we can warm up with a warm-up poem!

Let's practice the basic method of replying to this post with a poem (full text) somehow on the theme of "warming up." It could be weather/temperature related, sports/practice related, or some other creative interpretation of "warming up."

Write away! Post away (via a reply to this post)!
