Before the sun rises
above the horizon.
Before there are
obligations to meet.
When it is just
me and my coffee
and  the rest of my world
is asleep,
I find peace.
There is no want
or need of me
by man nor beast.
All are content
and I am free
to be in service
only to myself.
My needs are few,
A cup of coffee,
creamy and sweet,
and a blanket
to warm my feet.
A window to watch
the sunrise through
stained glass.
Iím often given to dozing,
keeping workaday thoughts
at bay.
Until the designated hour arrives
and I have to pay the day
its dues,
I am peaceful in the moment.
doing whatever I choose.

Yes indeed Lori Rhoden, peace has always come at a price. Some pay more, some less, but no matter. One who truly appreciates peace understands the value of it.

May you have much of it.

Just out looking for the real me...

PU,
Many things in life are free, but you can make them come at a high emotional price because life gets complicated. I enjoy my time in the morning even though I usually grumble because it is one of the animals at the door getting me up an hour before the alarm. ~L

Yann,
You are so right. And if it is fixed just the way you like it, then it is a little bit of heaven. ~L
