Poet's Perspective (A Day Logged in Poetry)

This is an experiment I wanted to try.  What would happen if I wrote about my day one poem at a time?  How would I use words to capture the moment, how I felt during it, and what I thought about it.  It helped me realize that my day isn't as linear as I usually think it is.  During any given day, anything can happen.  What lies before you is unedited and as raw and honest as possible.  Enjoy the glimpse into my life.

7:46am
I'm awake, I'm awake
woke up from a bad dream
Woke up to loud pipes
And now feeling groggy in bed. 

8:49am
Cooking breakfast
Almost awake 
Waiting for coffee
Let the adventure begin. 

9:23am
Warmth surrounding me
Off with the old
Ready for the new,
Feeling fresh;
My day seems pointless without a shower

9:35am 
Blueberry waffles with fresh ones on top
Toasted frozen waffles are okay,
but fresh blueberries make it so much better. 

Everything is better with coffee!
Breakfast, lunch, or no meal at all. 
A walk down the street, sitting at home, 
A book, a friend, or an endless task of chores;
Everything is better with coffee!

9:46am 
My idea of relaxing:
Home with my family,
watching TV together,
Sipping coffee,
While the little one plays with trains. 

10:57am
Carrying my son around the living room while he pretends he to be flying, or Superman. 
Son, you can be whoever you imagine yourself to be. 

11:20am
Grocery shopping again,
A necessary cycle for nourishment
Being healthy is a choice. 

11:34pm
Cooking lunch
Multitasking madness;
That is all. 

2:23pm
Time to unplug,
Some time for me,
Journal, book, coffee;
Just sit and let be. 

2:56pm
Words through my eyes
and into my head,
A mental vacation 
swimming through pages
of lost thoughts and dreams. 

4:38pm
Up from a nap
groggy, yet good
Now to catch up
with an hour less to go. 

1:14am
Day's end
Almost ready for bed
Reflecting on what happened
and what to do tomorrow.
