Morning's Brew

Morning’s Brew

by Nancy Clarke

The welcoming aroma of brewed coffee

My senses awake from this comfortable place of rest

A tranquil morning, the room bathed in half-light

Floating downstairs and I am greeted with a sweet kiss

You know how to make my day shine from the start

Peering through the window and I am greeted by soft sunlit rays

The trees are once again full of life

Lush green hues that cannot be missed

Blooming flowers filling our garden of love

The birds singing their usual morning tunes

I take a sip of coffee and I sit back with your hand in mine

Another beautiful day
