Morning Wake-up Call Fibs-a Trio

Thanks to Margaret Simon for hosting
Digi-Lit Sunday

As I stretched and woke this morning, I listened to the sounds around the house.  I had to capture them quickly as I knew they would melt with the rays of the sun.  I quickly got to work, busying my fingers with tapping on the keys...here is the pay-off...three little Fibs about waking up.  And a bonus-creating with the "Poetic" app (which is a free download today!).

Waking Up

Birds
Chirp
Chirping
Sun peeking
Stretch, yawn...still sleeping
Yawn, stretch, eyes open- now awake!


Wake Up!

Call
Chirp
Chirping
No one stirs
Morning Dove calls us!
It's time to wake up sleepy heads!




Rise and Shine

pause...
Rise...
And shine!
Ready mind-
Wonder and thinking?
Heart beating, eyes blinking... it's time!


So, I downloaded it and started playing with the words from the first Fib...the pic above shows my result.  It's fun to play...with words and poetry on a slow, sleepy, Sunday morning.  Ironically, Margaret's post today is about Revision...I needed to revise my Fibs-I left the first lines off of them...thanks for Kat's catch-I fixed.  The importance of having a buddy read or collaborating before taking it to final publishing is key.  Thanks for this reminder Margaret!

  1. What?
    No
    Second
    One beat line?
    Are you awake yet?
    Or are you writing in your sleep? ;)

    Love the first of these, Amy. Mayhaps they're 'Cheep. Chirp. Chirping.' birds.
