The Daily Post’s daily prompt for April 21st: Because the Night. Are you a night owl or are you the early bird? What’s your most productive time of day? When do you do your best work?


The dust is settled,

The air is pure

The night is silent, and

Most are asleep.

A deadline is upon me,

It’ closing in.

Coffee in hand,

Armed with my laptop,

I sit on the couch,

Snuggled and settled in,

Preparing to hit my target.

I thrive at this time,

The night owl that I am.

Bluetooth headphones in,

Smooth sounds thumping in my ears.

Times passes and I’m done,

With minutes to spare.

Hours later I retreat from the couch, and

Make the journey to dreamland.
