Morning in the kitchen

Sleep, hurriedly escapes
Sliding down gossamer drapes
Hearing the kettle whistle
Gentle tinkering in the kitchen
I wake up knowing you are there
Letting the glorious sunrise flirt
With the gray in your temples
Smiling, I slowly shuffle my feet
Step into fuzzy warm slippers
To join you in the blissful blaze
Of another day of togetherness

Canvas

On paper cloudsAnd cotton windsDreams danceOn wishful wingsOf burnt sunsetsMelting sherbetsBerrylicious stainsOn azure vistasSilken summonsFrom opal skiesWith fluid colorsA painted sunrise
