Waking Up Summer


The cat scatters by with his morning salutations.
A symphony of purrs and meows as he longs for my affection.

I open my eyes.

Wafts of crisp morning air trickle in from the open window above.
It smells Earthy. So green.

I breathe.

The sun’s rays display a brilliant light show on the ceiling.
Like the lights are dancing just for me.

I watch.

The girls run to my bedside requesting to snuggle.
I lift the blankets to let them in; one daughter snuggled on each side.

I smile.
