a morning list

At the fresh edge of the day, when new threads of life knot into the old and draw them into rewoken light.

the first cup of tea
fragments of dreams
calm red-gold light laying gentle against surfaces: tile, skin, water
voices reaching for warmth & sound
grass-gleam
tentativity
bird song, wind sigh
love's grateful smile after the dark
the long lovely stretch of waking

  1. that's a dreamy list, I don't have such thoughts in the morning, my is more like, 'it's morning already? again?' but once I am fully awake, I wouldn't mind seeing any of these on your list...

    have a lovely day.

  4. I love mornings too. I love how quiet it is, and that I can drink hot spicy tea with milk. I also feel more fresh in the morning, my thoughts are clearer. Thanks for this beautiful post.
