The leaves too are drowsy and drooping
Along with the rest of the world.
The birds are awaiting the day break
Eloquent silence all around.
The light of twinkling stars
The fading dark of night
Vivid hues of the horizon
Perfect backdrop for the first cuppa.
Warmth of the cup in the hands
Rivaling the warm fuzzy feeling
That the dawn brings with it.
Every sip brings with it
The hope of the new day
Gratitude for the day past
Thanking God for the good gifts he has given.
My tea cup and me
Early birds in the busy life
Taking a moment to savor
Before living starts in full swing.
