A Tennessee Winter Morn
A day of Tennessee winter is upon us.
The morning starts slowly.
You want more time to sleep
and ask less of the the chaos from
Outside my prescious sanctuary here.
34 degrees is too cold! I climb out of bed.
I head toward the hot coffee. Relief at Last!
The warm liquid slowly drips toward stomach.
Finally the sun peaks from behind the clouds
Another day promises of warmth to come.
By mid morning the temperature climbs to
Fifty-five with clear, sunny skies. I smile.
Yes, another Tennessee winter morn.
