An over-easy orb cheerfully awakens,
spreading citrus sunbeams ‘cross
every nook and cranny of my soul.
A thirsty tangerine sunrise drinks honeydew dry.
Marshmallow clouds dapple a blueberry sky.
Curtains open to toasted cinnamon hills,
shadows waffle on my windowsill.
Cherries jam and oranges crush
tender leaves into bubbly ginger tea for me
on this marmalade morning.
