The Wake Up Call



Lost in the sweet delirium of an early morning dream
The unwelcome blast from her call comes crashing through my sleep.
Slumbering, mumbling, crumbling I stumble down my hall
All for the sake of my wonderful little wife's precious wake up call

I love you honey comes a sweet voice through the ear piece of the receiver
I love you too I yawn insync trying hard to please her
Are you awake darling? she quizs me with a giggle in her squawk 
No I am still sleeping baby, you are speaking the our dog who I just trained to talk

smiles.. sometimes a talking dog would not be bad at all esp. when it would help that we could sleep a bit longer.. my wake up call is josh redman - tenor sax piece... soothing...even in the early morning..smiles

haha...if only we could train the dog to talk eh? smiles...its endearing and playful though...not a bad thing to wake up to, love, eh?

Björn said...

Ha.. that could happen.. I hope there was at least a time-zone difference excuse for that call..

No I get those call sometimes but it's my loving wife who I don't mind if she wakes me up though I do struggle at times to reach the phone

If I could teach our dog to talk she would surely rat me out for a treat! What a clever addition to Poetics tonight. Thank you!

Love the wisecrack come-back! I have a husband who calls early each morning like clockwork,even on days off when he forgets I might be sleeping in. Might have to borrow and recycle that final line of yours!

Fun for me. Glad the giggle is in the poem.

What a fun little tale in your poem. Good one liner that we could all use at some point.

Excellent - I just could help the laugh. Loved your take on the prompt.
