sunlight & tea

It was difficult to get out of bed this morning...

the kids have colds again, and so do I; tea and cinnamon toast for breakfast.

But the sunlight was so beautiful today

shining in and casting shadows on the hardwood floors

with an intensity I haven't seen in months.

A square of the bluest sky you can imagine was sighted from the kitchen window.

I think spring must be arriving quickly now; I feel joyous and relieved.
