...too engrossed in the morning news...

Tanka Diary [Awakened too early on Saturday morning]

by Harryette Mullen

Awakened too early on Saturday morning
by the song of a mockingbird
imitating my clock radio alarm.

Walking along the green path with buds
in my ears, too engrossed in the morning news
to listen to the stillness of the garden.
