Dew Drops


You were the early riser…

I awakened each morning to hickory-smoked bacon or freshly baked banana crumb muffins.

The fragrance of Maxwell House drifted into our bedroom.

The morning nook was meticulously arranged … fine china and cut flowers from your garden.


I teased. I could never arise without those aromas waffling me awake…

But you knew. I was only getting up to see you.


You were radiant.


I’m still an early riser.

I’ve mastered the pre-set coffeemaker…

Microwave imitations of pastries.

The breakfast nook was moved into the small garden…


Each morning, I long to have breakfast with you.
