Free as a bird

Cage door opens

bird perches on the edge

Unsure of whats outside

of the bars of the cage

 

Hesitantly,launches

bird flies fast and high

landing high in a tree

Bird is free

 

I want to be, Free as a bird

to choose what I do

When I have a holiday

Take a break for lunch

 

Not to be on the hamster wheel

Not to be dictated too

Self sufficient, live my life

As free as a bird, not locked in a cage

Too early to rise

It’s 4am again, the clock tells me so

The bright morning sun has risen

It’s brightness shines through my window

I can’t believe how early it is again

 

The birds sing their morning song

The flies and bees buzz around my window

The dogs are barking in the distance

My mind is whiring, the day has begun

 

Every day, my internal clock does the same

The beautiful sunlight streams through my window

As much as I love this peaceful part of the day

I just want to wake a few hours later

 

I’ve tried listening to music to fall back to sleep

Hot chocolate, reading a book, turning my brain off

But still the 4am sun rise calls me

Tomorrow I am going to try something different

 

I close the curtains tight, no cracks at all

the alarm is switched off.

I sleep, a long deep dark sleep

I wake, I feel refreshed, there is no light

 

Nothing streams through the curtains

It’s 7am, i made it passed 4am

That is the answer, darken my room

Let my body clock adjust itself.

 

The cheek of it

Stillness surrounds me, peace is here

To my right I hear the goats bells,

The deep clanging fills the air

To my left to cows bellow loudly

Their noise jumbles with the bells

Behind me the birds chatter joyously

Their music tries to fill the air

Above me is the fly highway

They buzz backwards and forwards with speed.

They are nosier than everything else

They have broken the stillness and peace

The cheek of it all.
