Stones Can Be Shattered

I used to set an alarm, but I don’t need it anymore.
My inner clock tells me when my feet should hit the floor.
My mind was set till your view clouded my way
Retracing my steps to walk in the light of day

Linking today (on time) to for a quadrille, a 44 word poem, excluding the title. Prompt word is ‘set’.

  5. My inner clock always worked well, waking me minutes before the alarm. Retired 9 years now, my bladder wakes me twice to thrice a night; frown.

    My inner clock keeps good enough time as well. If not the light from the window also works.

    I identify with your poem, Mary. I haven’t set an alarm since I retired five and a half years ago. Alas, like Glenn, I’m a slave to my bladder.
