Waiting for the sun to rise and listening for the sounds of spring, these are my chores this morning. The coffee is brewing on the stove and paper in hand, ready for the day.
Spring will be early this year; I feel it in my bones. Saw some robins in the yard yesterday; a sure sign of spring. The tulips are peeking through the ground, readying their burst of seasonal color.
The crispness in the air makes the coffee taste better. This porch is a perfect spot to observe the start of a new day. The morning is peaceful and still, but the quiet will soon be broken with the business of the day. Like a calm before the storm, early morning is witnessed by very few.
Pine trees lend freshness to the early morning air as the wind whistles through their tops. Soon, the eastern sky will be ablaze with morning light; a new day begins. Time for another cup of “Joe.”
