A Spring Morning

Guest Post by Jillsy Girl

....

the fogginess 
of sleep
lingers
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
