silent dance

the silent dance of breakfast
sleepily waltzing around each other
in our small kitchen
real coffee for you
decaf or tea for me 

we sit quietly with our cereal
and watch the trees in back
gray squirrels climb up on the railing
and eat the seeds you set out for them
a flash of red as a cardinal
sneaks a seed when they leave

in spring the door is open
and we hear them singing
but each morning I love
our quiet time together
before our hectic day starts

no words are needed
after 25 years together
just a glance, a smile
and the day begins

author's note: it may be spring today, but I saw snowflakes and had to put on the heat to take the chill off the house!
