Morning Coffee

One cracks one, in slow motion,

Then the other follows,

Letting in the cold air,

To remind us,

How the day pushes forth, … 21 more words

Morning Time

Morning time –

as the sun begins to shine.

Over the horizon,

The First Bird

The first bird
of the morning
I hear
as the water for my coffee boils
on the stove

is not one of nature
but rather that
of a fluorescent buzz
from the light above my head

I awaken before the birds outside
I know within the hour
I will begin to hear their calls

My morning sun
when I first rouse
is a false one
an illusion
brought about by the ingenuity
of electricity

The real sun will emerge
when it awakens from its nightly slumber
as I drink my second cup of coffee

The darkness soothes my soul
helps me prepare for the day ahead
allows me to shed the nightmares of the evening 
before
and attempt to begin again
refreshed

If only I could sing like the cardinal that comes
and sits on our deck
If only my voice would lift to the heavens in 
thanks

Rather I sit
and listen to 
the incessant buzz
unsure what the day ahead
will bring
