Friday Flash & Mag 171: rose-colored glasses


“Morning is the best!” chirps
the early riser.
Slurp..... Ah! the first 
cup of coffee tastes
just as fine to those
who got up latte'.
It is a s-t-r-e-t-c-h thinking
night owls do not know
what they are missing.
YaWn..... They know
that the day dawns,
-no matter the hour-
for people wearing
 rose-colored glasses. 


Written for Friday Flash 55 - My post in exactly 55 words - for the G-Man.
-ALSO-
Written for The Mag: Mag 171 that inspired with the above image prompt
(Waking, Walking, Singing, in the Next Dimension? 1979 by Morris Graves).

Ah, they say that those with rose-colored glasses do, infact, live fuller lives.

Oh I like this. I'm a night owl married to an early bird.

Love it. I used to be a night owl until I married an early bird. I prefer the later.

It's after 5 a.m. I overslept! The birds have been up for a while. But the coffee, it's always good.
