On Spring Mornings

Opening my eyes to sunshine
I can remember coffee’s taste
And sigh.

Morning sun paints gold on tulips
I bend, nose-deep, slippers dew-damp
Breathe in.

Cardinals, wrens, orioles high,
Hued treetops burst with many songs
I hear.

All colors and sizes of squirrel
Olympians who want birdseed
I laugh.

Pussy willow line long stems, they’re
Velvety soft against my cheek
I purr.

Spring peepers proclaim location
To mates – and listening herons
I’m torn.

I see you working the garden
Wishing you could see me also.
I weep.

My misty form fades along with
morning dew, longing to hold you

    Reminded me of the movie “Ghost”…

    I can see the similarity… nature as it progresses. 🙂
