Morning poem

The winter trees hold naked arms aloft against the silent backdrop of morning sky
a rhapsodie of lyric lifting

Lazy snowflakes linger in the morning air
bouyed in their descent by the quiet cold

Against my breast, the indescribable softness of a small son’s downy head
as he nuzzles, warm and cozy, for his morning drink.

    Well, of course by ‘nuzzle’ I mean ‘cry ravenously and snuffle desperately’ but that didn’t really fit 😉
