The other day I was woken
by the "Uschi-Alarm Clock."

Every morning by 5am, if we are lucky,
Uschi has had enough night time "silence."

Walking quietly on his wheel is soon
accompanied by HOWLING !!!

This pierces the ear plugs I now sleep with.
Thanks to the U-man I have been "lucky"
enough to regularly witness

the sun rise over the Cascades.

The moon is all that lights the western sky
and the little cap of snow on Mary's Peak, but

the eastern sky is vibrant.

Thanks Uschi !!

As I return to the warmth of the house
Uschi is waiting for me,

looking out his cat window in the door.

Quiet little Vladi-man is also there
watching the sun rise.
