This is so lovely! The way you started with a simple declarative was a great, effective way to start – the way you give a plain, ordinary statement and then illustrate it with this beautiful, flowery poem. I also liked your use of imagery, for example the metaphor, ‘my brain flipping / sleepily through the pages of trivial to do lists’ – this gave me a great image of a cartoon brain being sat at the breakfast table, like a little old man peeling through the pages of his morning paper. I loved the soft story arc of the narrator shaking off their sleepiness (them, of course, not being a morning person), and slowly starting to embrace the new day – very positive, and beautifully done!

Great work 🙂
