5 february





there have been a couple of times i told him we could 

go to the doughnut shoppe early in the morning

just the two of us
~

before he falls asleep he reminds me
~
at 7 o'clock in the morning

i feel a gentle tugging at my toes
 ~

in the summertime we dangle our feet off the edge of the wharf

i am drinking my coffee and he is eating his 

strawberry frosted doughnut with sprinkles

in the winter we go to the beach

and walk around till we are so cold we can't stand it

and then we drive home

to see if anyone else is awake yet

so we can tell them about our special adventure

that they missed
~

but we bring them back a doughnut

  4. When camping my son asks me to wake him early in the morning so we can sneak down to the beach and watch the thick mist burn off the lake as the sun rises ... our secret treat :) Wendy x

  9. Often on Saturday mornings, I wake up to my sweetie coming in with a warm apple fritter and a Starbucks light white mocha! It's always a special moment.

  17. This made me smile. I used to get donuts as a treat with my Dad when we went to the bank on Sunday mornings, when the bank only opened for four hours... Today, my wife brings home donuts on coffee on Sundays as she's coming home from work. Your story makes me think of that warmth.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
