A Spring Morning

Guest Post by Jillsy Girl


the fogginess 
of sleep
as i walk
through the quiet house
the only sound 
is that of my slippers 
with each sluggish step
i open the back door
my eyes and ears 
 fill with delight
the sun still lurks behind the trees
her multitude of arms stretching forward
casting warmth to everything they touch

the mature viburnum aflame in pure white diamonds
a young dogwood beside it
 can't match its beauty yet
but tries its hardest
a towhee sits close by 
overlooking a nearby birdbath 
contemplating a dip
as others in the distance
chirp their tunes to each other

nature coming to greet the new day
offering me its simple gift
a spring morning
