    7 a.m.

    Sun rises quietly over the seas
    As her rays shine through the
    Slightly opened shades and I
    See a sparrow singing a song;

    I gently pull the covers over
    My love’s rested frame being
    Gentle not to awaken her as I
    Slip on my sandals and robe;

    I enter the kitchen to prepare
    Her a meal of favorites with
    A bowl of fruit and set a place
    For her with a fresh cut tulip;

    I start her bath as her meal is
    Warmed and I pour a little oil
    Scented with mandarin in the
    Tub and watch the bubbles rise;

    I place her meal on her tray as
    I hear her step into the tub and
    I bring it to her to enjoy as she
    Rest quietly in the scented mist;

    Good morning love…

    9 a.m.

    I enter my place of work making
    Sure all my tasks for the day are
    In place and I stop for a moment
    To send her a musical egreeting;

    I’m stopped in the restaurant by a
    Waitress who brings to me a glass
    Of Chardonnay that I didn’t request
    “it’s from the ladies at the bar”

    I allow the glass to rest at my table
    Not thinking twice about consumption
    And the one who interrupts me is the one
    whom purchases this offer of friendship;

    “I saw you sitting alone and I thought
    we could share a drink, dinner, maybe
    more,” spoke the nervous confident lady,
    “Sorry, but my wife would object.”

    5 p.m.

    rush hour's nice and easy as I turn into
    the market to purchase dinner and I see
    a set of fresh cut flowers at the end of
    the aisle so I pick them up and a card;

    I arrive home smiling for her car is
    not there so I quickly enter to begin
    our meal; I dim the lights and warm a
    bath for her so she will be comfortable;

    dinner’s almost done when I hear the lock
    in the key so I turn on Will Downing with
    the remote and meet her at the door with
    a smile and a loving gentle embrace;

    I take her coat and carry her to the couch,
    Slowly removing her shoes as she lays her
    Head back on the pillows and closes her
    Eyes as I gently rub the tension from her feet;

    Dinner’s ready, your bath is warm and I
    Shall await you when you are done so
    That I may hear the things you wish to
    share with me about your day;

    she staggers to her feet with her shoes in
    hand and as she reaches the entrance of the
    bedroom she looks to me and ask, “will you
    share this bath with me?”

    Taking care of home….

    some scenes

    of absolute beauty evoke several mono-syllabic words that describe the awe felt at the conclusion of a luscious read such as this:

    "YESSSSSSS!" is but one of them.

    Thank you for this glimpse of heaven!
