Morning

img_5846

apple green kitchen walls

pinecones that smell of cinnamon

bare feet walking on smooth floors

 

tangy greek yogurt and icy blackberries

lungs that fill and empty

sun shining through windows

 

mushy dog who holds my gaze

flannel and fleece

quiet and calm

 

hot coffee and cold milk

honey yellow pillow, sky blue chair

sunlit green leaves out my window

 

sore legs, new sneakers

open road out a glass door

a mind that can think and imagine

the promise of a

hot shower on new muscles

 

my father’s wisdom

all around me, patience

beauty, provision

good news for those I love

 

and all of this

on a Thursday morning

in September

in the course of one hour

in one room

of my house

 

who knows what I will find

when I step out the door

 

God walking ahead

this morning

and I’m thankful
