Soft Morning

by Sandy M. Humphrey

I long for a soft morning
Comforted down duvets
Atop Egyptian mattresses
Memory foam pillow tops
Supporting every inch
Of a frame curled in
Quiet repose from head
To the tips of stretched
And painted toes

Sunshine barely breaking
Through a part in silken
Drapes and birds chirping
Quietly as dogs wagtails
Silently curled up near
Awaiting my awakening
Just as you might be
Stirring gently next
To me drifting closer
Lingering longer
Looking for comfort
Of a spooning softer
Side to morning
Just now dawning

The first peek of this morning brings me to this. Imagine...

...just imagine pouring beauty and comfort onto the path of this tired desert lizard, who is crawling through a mirage to find it

sounds wonderful...you capture the essence so well...I'm wishing to go back home and climb back under those covers now!

Quite comforting Sandy, from head to painted toes of this poem. Thd dogs part fondly reminds me of our two cats, and how they too wait anxiously for our awakening in the morning to get their own day under way.

Ahhhh! Sleeping in with the knowledge that there is nothing pressing to get up for! And with someone next to one who feels the same! (It worked for a few weeks for me when I retired! Except I slept alone!)

Beautiful Sandy; upon the angel wings of those mornings I could happily dwell all the day in the uttermost parts of life's peace. Thanks for this.

Ah! Your poem is comfort food to the heart and is the perfect final taste before I head for MY bed. I don't think a guy can sink into and become one with a bed like a woman, but I sure am gonna try now. Thanks.

I can't believe I missed this its first time around. The flow and lyrical feeling to this is marvelous. Congrats on POTD!

The most astounding aspect of this poem is that it so accurately conveys the sensation of comfort. I feel as if I am laying.
