Most mornings
my mind is working by 5 am
and most mornings I arise from bed
and twist a lot until my feet are on the floor.

If I stand and begin my day on my right foot
I am apt to be grateful — for the day, the past —
and everything my mind displays
so early in the day.

If I begin my day on my left foot
I’m apt to be a bit grouchy
and thankfulness eludes me for a time.

I think this rather strange
but I assume we all are strange
in one way or the other.
