In The Morning Air

The crisp, cool morning air blankets my thoughts without a care.

I listen to squirrels dancing from branch to branch

With angelic balance and sweet, clumsy grace.

I hear a train in the distance, sounds of nearby traffic and early conversations

Between little birds in the trees, but not a glimpse of your face.

With gentle whispers of the creek below, and a brand new kitty

Whose name is Snow, I’m fluttered with distractions between the sounds I hear and

A brave, little feline who shows no fear.

I admire the lush, assorted, summer-shades of green, from trees and plants and the flowers I’ve seen, but all of this can not compare,

to when you are home, when you are here.
