Early Rise

001Waking up too soon
dreams dissolve, sleep elusive,
I rub my tired eyes

006But then my heart smiles
a new day, a new chance – Life’s
consolation prize.


Do you ever wake up too early?
Or do you like to start every morning at daybreak?

  1. Gorgeous pictures, Jennifer. I love mornings, and if I had your ocean view I’d love them even more. πŸ™‚ When we stayed in a beach cabin for a weekend, I got up earlier than usual to catch a sunrise.

  2. If I have to take my car into work, as opposed to the train, I’m up at 4.45am (just to miss the horrendous Joburg/ Sandton traffic). On train days, I’m up at 6am. When I am on holiday at the coast, I love to wake up around 5ish and make the most of the early, quiet time by the sea. Early morning is such a beautiful, hopeful time of the day. Your sunrise photos are gorgeous.

  3. I hate the act of getting up, but I love morning. It’s when I still have the courage and energy to get going on things I’ve been neglecting for too long. Like a moment of clarity. Mornings ❀

  4. I don’t intentionally get up early, but when I do, I love watching the sun come up Jennifer. This morning I lay in bed and thought it must be almost time to get up and then I looked at the clock and it was only 1:15AM!

  5. I do wake up too early sometimes. I find it more frustrating than peaceful, so if it isn’t too much earlier than usual, I’ll just get up and start my workout sooner than I normally would. Extra time to get work done later. πŸ™‚

    1. You sound like my daughter. She’s an OR nurse and she works out early every morning before she goes in.
      I was frustrated yesterday when I felt I had no other choice but get up. By the time I came downstairs, made coffee and watched the sunrise, I was peaceful. πŸ™‚
