Her Happy Place | #1000Speak

Her Happy Place

She drinks in the morning’s gentle glow,
watching rich plums, fade into rouge, orange peaks
unfolding,
and finally bright yellow
chases away lingering tendrils of inky night skies.
Even the distant mountains’ craggy peaks
seem to stretch a little
to feel dawn’s embrace.
Her puppy lifted his sleepy head once
giving a half-hearted yip at birds
singing their morning tribute
in the maple trees.
She sipped her coffee from her chipped mug,
toes curled on her porch’s rail.
Pink polish matched the swaying the posies.
She smiled,
settling into her happy place.
