Woke up this morning

Lay in bed

Eventually rolled out

Cold stone floor.

Kettle on.

Brush my teeth,

Cup. Bag.

Water first, no sugar, milk

leave the bag in.

Sip.

Sip.

I start to ease inside.

Sun creeps over the floor.

My kitchen and my mood lights up.

Shadows

shrink.

Cocopops for breakfast

-a mouthful of joy.

I start to smile

and I eat my day

one spoon-full of hope at a time
