When sunlight reaches
my round brown kitchen table
and the scent of coffee
punctuates the soft silence,
there’s a warmth
and sound of colors.

Gold and scarlet
dance along the fringes
of deciduous trees,
and the evergreens keep watch
loyal and gentle
protective and real
sentient guards of Nature.

All the while
my spirit weaves with words
gifted on this blissful morning.
