MORNING ON THREE SIDES

Mornings. Like heaven.
It’s morning on three sides now
Windows all around

I love my old quilt
Wrapped around me as I wake
To morning again

Wrapped around my head

Out of my slumber
Slowly but surely
Almost ready to start things

Make the coffee and
Turn on the news of the day
Take a shower too

Maybe

It’s on three sides now
Not behind my pillow though
It’s a blank wall there

And I’m in my quilt
Morning is embracing me
Coming through the windows.
