Awaiting Your Smile

Singular snowflakes spread-out
blanket a dreary barren berm 
that overlooks the dormant meadow
bringing a brightness to fields of grey.

Smiles overcome me as I watch
the proud red-breasted robin 
pick at pieces of weathered brush
choosing just the right one
to comfort her nesting baby.

Whistles echo out of the rustic kitchen
where a steamed up copper kettle sings
waiting patiently to pour into perfect tea.
The first sip commands my attention and
wraps tightly around me, leaving a feeling
like your precious smile on a cloudy day

Quietly I sit absorbing the peaceful morning
like the baby robin in anticipation your return

I'll have to buy some small cups for you and Christina. I'll have Cailyn host a tea party : )

I see you are also a tea lover ... Jasmine and Licorice are among my favorites. I am entranced by the tranquility of this poem ... it sounds like my kind of morning.
