Oh the deliciousness of a Satruday morning lie in
the light weight of summer bedding
the heaviness of the dog snuggled by my side
the way the after dawn light
fills the room
and welcomes me gently to a new day

I relax into the decadence of a morning
not ruled by an agenda or a to list
allowing me the time and space
to breathe freely
and melt into the softness of the sheets
I sigh in gratitude

these occasional mornings are delightful
rest for a weary mind and soul
time apart from reality
this, I think, must be an earthly glimpse
of the vast heavenly kingdom
awaiting us all
