The unscheduled greets me
with satisfying silence
for there is
no Have To Get Up and Go.
There’s no plan whatsoever
of what I have to do
or where I have to go.
Easing out of bed,
I tiptoe downstairs.
‘Tis time, early morning,
a time to select favorites,
a preferred mug and flavor,
Swiss Chocolate Almond possibly?
a choice book– electronic or paper copy?
a special notebook or journal,
a choice pencil, a comfortable
place to enjoy quiet time’s riches.
While holding this favorite cup to lips,
I watch the flicking of Lilly-cat’s tail.
I observe a sky blending its backdrops,
each moment’s hues ever-changing.
Mesmerized I’m caught in wonder as
night’s darkness steps aside and eases out.
The new day unfolds its pure radiance.
Both hands embrace radiated heat from
my mug on this cooler autumn morning.
I take that first sip
of Swiss Chocolate Almond coffee
as ideas awaken to dance in my head.
I realize a very beautiful thing.
ones that remind me
of something dear –
is to be sipped,
