Just Breathe

by Y. M. Roger

It's been years since I was alone in the morning - think I was still working full time. This morning, it’s just me and the cats. My husband’s at work, and my son is at school.

I didn’t drink my coffee with breakfast earlier so I’d have it for this moment.

Stepping toward the door, I glance at the clock; there should still be time.

Yep, the morning light is barely peeking over the hill out front.  I can just make out a couple of squirrels and, perhaps, a chipmunk busy on the big rock about halfway up the slope.

My phone’s inside – only need the birds and frogs singing their own special melodies for this.

Placing my coffee on the porch table, I sit in my rocking chair.

I close my eyes. I feel the sun’s warmth creep across my face from the hilltop.
