Sunbathing in Bed

I started writing poetry as a child. I write performance poetry, observational, sometimes humorous, sometimes serious human rights issues

Sunbathing in Bed - a Fantasy

Do you ever have that warm feeling in the half-dream world, when the morning sunlight peeps through the curtains, so bright that you can see it even with your eyes closed, and you know it's going to be a lovely day?

My Inspiration

My bed faces due East, so I can lie there in the morning, watching as the sun gently appears through the trees outside.

Early one morning, as I lay in bed watching the sun rise over the roof-tops opposite, wallowing in the warmth and brightness, I was suffused with a feeling of well-being.

I closed my eyes for a few minutes. Then these words began to flood my brain and I sat up in bed, reached for pen and paper, which I always keep nearby, and started writing this poem.
