I thought I had it set up perfectly
with favorite paper, pen, and mug,
with favored flavor this AM, vanilla.
Delicious first sips nudge seconds. Mmm.
This coffee is Saturday-Special-Spectacularized.
Sitting in this preferred place to script thoughts,
I steadily search sky for dawn’s early light. Not here,
It seems like the flawless setting.
Time’s frame is ideal: a non-work day
with hours uninterrupted. Mmm.
But wait –
Something is not here, not yet.
Inspiration is still sleeping.
