Poem #2

"Still Life"

a bowl of chocolate-covered sunflower seeds smile
in pastels of lavender, orange, yellow, pink
mug of tepid half-drunk coffee
toast crumbs on a plate, drips of butter

pre-dawn sky vanishes
morning sun fills the kitchen
--it's later than I thought

then suddenly a cry
muted and distant
cuts the soft light
into pieces

my day has begun
