Creaking floorboards whisper she is up. I move to put the coffee on. By the mirror in the hall, I pause to fix my hair. I want to look my best for her. Two seeds, long-planted, growing comfort, as clocks run down.

Thank you S1 for the feedback. I'm not too familiar with terms like analogy, allegory, or allusion. I am new to the mechanics of writing poetry and have a lot to learn. I am reading :a poet's glossary by Edward Hirsch and reading such great work by yourself and others, hoping to improve in both technique and content. You are an inspiration. Thank you.
