Childhood morning

Morning has started

I listen from my bed

Birds chirping loudly

The electricity wakes

The shipping forecast

Talks from the bathroom

The kettle whistles

The shower hums

Familiar voices drift upwards

The clock strikes,

with 7 cuckoo chirps

the washing machine whirs

its on a top speed

and in just a moment

A voice will shout

Are you up yet?

As if you could sleep

through the electricity din

Of the house waking up

Once again.

Autumnal lovers

Autumnal morning,

Lovers delight

Low rising sun

Just enough heat

A lover’s walk

In the morning dew

Dazzling jewels

adorning  cobwebs

Delicately strong

Soft lovers kiss

Blackberry sweet

Hands are cold

Entwined with yours

Warm once again

Whisper of a breeze

Rustle in the leaves

Of a love that will last

A smile, a giggle

Now words are spoken

None are needed

Just a lingering kiss

On an autumn morning

Made to last
