Comfortable Dawn

We had a cool morning

With the window open

And the smell of rain


The slowly waking sun

Peeked into our bedroom

While we stayed under

The covers.

Too toasty to move, too

Cool in the room to want

To leave—we were having a

Comfortable dawn but

We knew it would end within

Mere minutes since work

Was creeping to fill our time.

I know we both wished

To pause in that lovely and

Comfortable dawn.
