(An A to Z Challenge entry)
Sleeping in on Saturday mornings,
I slowly wake and sit in silence.
Stretching my limbs,
I absorb life’s simplicity.
Sunlight peeks through my shades.
casting shadows on my skin.
I succumb to my surroundings
to embrace life’s simplicity.
As onions saute in scrambled eggs
and sausages sizzle on the stove.
I sip on hot coffee
tasting life’s simplicity.
Aromas tantalize my nostrils.
Sweet and savory scents
wisp gently into my breaths.
I inhale life’s simplicity.
Songbirds sing melodies softly.
As squirrels scatter nuts and snicker,
I listen to their whispers.
I eavesdrop on life’s simplicity.
