This week I get the pleasure of being on Spring Break and we’re having a staycation (the hubby isn’t off this week). I was inspired to write this poem, by waking up to this gorgeous morning and not having to rush around. I think I can appreciate these mornings because they aren’t my every day thing. Enjoy!
A usual morning-
Rush, rush rush
Alarms blaring, WAKE up!
Jump out of bed
Quick make coffee, lunches in the bags
Jump in the shower, brush your teeth,
dry your hair, get dressed,
Shoot – coffee’s cold
back for a new cup, “ahh that’s better”
Wake up E and let the battle begin
Out the door, run run run
Do I have everything? Hope so, off I go!
But a vacation morning –
Eyes flicker open – then close, open – then close
stretch and roll, looks like B went to work
gaze out window
feel the breeze
the orange glow of the sun peeking in
birds singing their morning songs
s-l-o-w-l-y get out of bed
time for some coffee
sit by the window –
alone in the quiet of the morning
staring out at the river –
Sipping, thinking, breathing
What will I do today?
