On summer morning in backyard breeze, my chair
calls out to me, as I hold my mug of coffee.
A bracing black liquid to start my day in fresh air
where I am serenaded by finches in tree.
The sun awakens slowly, a lemon hue
that throws a light across the book I view.
Imagine lounging all day long, and reading
to your heart’s content, with only birdsong for company.
Indulge yourself in a classic or perhaps a mystery.
How sweet that morning air, and a book that is intriguing.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
