I awaken to the sounds
Of birds and ducks and geese.
A mist stands above the lake
Like a bridal veil.

I descend the wooden stairs
Greeted with sweet meow.
Ancient dog follows slowly,
Pets and hugs will follow soon.

The smell of fragrant coffee...
Fried eggs, bacon and toast,
Stay safe, my Sweet Love, today.
Husband leaves for work.

A bathroom radio blares.
Teenage voice raised in song.
The child gambols down the stairs.
My beloved son.
