A slash of Ginger

The wind is getting up.
I awake early, rise..
make a cup of tea..
lemon with honey, a
splash of ginger.
Sore throat imminent.
I love to lie in bed
half in half out
listening to the winter
weather blow..a quick
glimpse of the sky
through my window
tells me it's going
to be wet. A gentle
breeze floats in,
a refreshing change.
For the past hour
an alarm clock in
my daughters room
had shouted it's
head off. Distant
disruption.. so
why don't I get
out of my
half inside state
and go turn
it off..
My tea is just
hitting the spot.
Time to reflect
of what the day
will bring. Stomach
rumbling, what
shall I have for
to break my fast?
The thought of
a nice hot shower
invites me to
move.. the alarm
clock still shrieks
in my daughters
bedroom.

red.neck chic ~ It started off raining, but after breakfast it cleared enough to thrash my 277kg of throbbing metal up n down the A38 a couple of times.. we eventually came back through Ashby but I missed the turn as I was going a tad bit too fast ;) thank you robelyn ;-*
