#JusJoJan prompt January 10th 2019

Todays prompt for JusJoJan is a cool one! And I am participating once again in this wonderful challenge!

The prompt word for today is, sunrise!

And I thought I’d write a little poem about it! So here goes!

A ray of Light
Let it in
Watch the sun
As it rises
Above the clouds
Making us feel
Happy and cheerful
A bright ray
A warm glow
The sun shines upon us
As we go!

8. Have fun!

And now, to what I am going to write…

First off, I’m late, but as they say, better late than never, right?

Its 1 AM. I cant sleep. Probably because I napped earlier. I probably shouldnt have done that. But my philosophy is, if your tired, and you dont have anywhere to be or anything that needs doing, then its perfectly ok to nap!

I’m glad I did! I needed it! Rest is good!

Tomorrow I can have another rest day. I have nowhere to be. Nothing to do. I can read and hopefully finish my book. Yay. I am loving my book, denied a mummy by Maggie Hartley. She’s great. Her books are amazing, I highly recommend them if you’ve never read one of them you should!

Ok well, time to go make some coffee! Sleep wont be coming for me any time soon so…I can feel free to drink my yummilicious flavoured coffee! Its delicious!
