Tamara Willems

the early birds…

There is great comfort in 
waking early 
 
beginning the day in a house still  
in slumber 
 
sitting with coffee and a book 
by the window 
where outside the day is just barely 
breaking 
last night’s beautiful worm moon 
bright against a still dark  
sky 

listen to the sounds of someone you love 
breathing nearby 
and tiny peeps and trills of 
the early  
birds 
as they rise 

later the subtle creaks of feet upstairs 
touching down 
as others begin 
to wake 
ready themselves for their workdays ahead 
while you are content 
to just 
sit 
small dog in your lap 
one  
at your feet 
soft contented snores 
 
when he comes to join me 
the one I love
the sun begins to rise
and 
it’s hard to imagine a more
perfect
place 

to be ♥
