Thoughts upon arising


---------  ---  that moment when you first
become aware,
that you're awake-
   Your feet are reaching for
the floor.
                And your mind,
(the inner/truest you) still caught
in the dream state,
     talks to you-
These,
"thoughts-upon-arising"
are the ones that
reveal yourself to you.

     Write them down
Or, if you must: 

1. Pee
2. turn coffee maker on
3. turn heat on under pan with oatmeal
4. swallow aspirin
do so out of habit, while holding on to those nuggets of wisdom
                                you awoke with.

     Write them down

This morning:
                        Motivation is only good for the present moment--
it's meager fodder for the
                        future.

I've heard that when one first awakes, thinking a positive thought can influence the whole day. Does the relief on relieving ones self count?

I enjoyed your poem, Bob :)
