“On Such a Perfect Morning”
I awoke to the perfect beginning
of a spectacular day.
The sun was still low enough
to enrich the colors and
deepen the shadows.
With air so crisp, clean, clear,
and cool I didn’t want to miss
a second of its offering.
I rushed through my daily tasks
resenting every moment that
I was not outside enjoying its glory.
Each detail was so delicious
that I found myself wanting
to skip breakfast and just eat the day…
That’s when I wondered
if this is what it’s like to be a tree
on such a perfect morning.
