The 5.00 A.M Nonsense Prophesy

by Venky

Furrowed eye brows and a creased forehead

Pages spread wide open but no message is being said

Yet another mediocrity packaged as a self-help offering

This one exhorting the reader to wake up at 5.00 A.M to do her thing

Gosh, well, I usually get up at 5:00 am, best writing times (or reading & replying to emails and blogs), but I didn’t realise it was following the latest fad in self-help.
Brilliant poem, says it. πŸ™‚

Thanks a lot! These days anything is kosher for the self help band wagon!

Yea. I reckon the best sefl-help is just to get on with it. πŸ™‚

An interesting take on the challenge. I enjoyed the internal rhyme: the poem has a nice flow to it.

One wonders if the article suggested a time to go to bed if intending to rise at 5a.m? It’d not be much help otherwise if one were sat up late writing until 3a.m πŸ˜‰

Namaste Dewin, glad you liked the take. There is a prescribed time that advocates sleeping by 10.30

Thank you πŸ™‚ My comment was tongue-in-cheek, but I’m grateful for your reply and to know that a prescribed time for sleeping exists πŸ˜‰ It is highly unlikely to happen…the muse of writing just wouldn’t allow it!

Have a great week. Perhaps you’ll be submitting to the challenge again on Saturday?

Namaste πŸ™‚
