"Morning Light", pastel, by Karen Margulis
It was a quiet morning --
just the call of a few birds
bringing back the daylight,
just the shaking of branches
as a wind did its early work.
Wherever he was
was wonderful –
upstairs with the silence
of his books,
in the kitchen with a cup of coffee,
outside as the sunlight
looked shyly through the trees.
All was quiet –
this fresh, carefree day
and his happy-go-lucky life.
