Morning Time, by Julie Potiker
I am busy
From the outside I might not appear as such
Yet I dedicate this time to me.
This precious time
When the house hums it’s mechanical hum, that sounds sometimes like a musical track is embedded in the low static
Birdsong fills my ears
The Wrens soprano 1 and soprano 2 are joined by the Spotted Towhee, whose croaking tune my ear recognizes instantly now, like turning a doorknob in my mind.
The Song Sparrow is aptly named, and I’m instantly cheered that it too, is here.
There can be more and more, all included, none denied I’m thinking as a Mourning Dove layers it’s low cooing into the loop. They have all the time in the world.
This cherished time
Which is anything but quiet
Is noisy in all the best ways.
My mug feels warm in my cupped hands
I feel my heart beating it’s low slow rhythm in my chest
My back and hips are comfortably supported in my favorite chair, it’s cane frame and soft cushion welcoming me each morning.
Picking up a book of poems
I’m filled with love that humans arrange words for each other across time
Humans gift one another these lines
Born from treasured time
Just like this.
