EarlyMorning (to Bean)


Early morning sky

Blue almost white

Three vanilla cloud

Streaks hover above

Like cigar smoke

Cool air trapped

Inside frosts panes

Like aging dust

Mid-July’s humidity brings

A damp chill

While coffee mugs

Steam and warm

Sipping ever slowly

Feeling it slither

Milk and honey

Walking to me

Sitting and drinking

Smiling and winking

Dressed in shorts

Red zipped jumper

Knees to chest

Warding off dawns

Early morning dew
