the color of my kitchen, buttercream

I’m celebrating National Poetry Month by writing and reading poetry, every day.
My goal is to write a poem a day for each day of the month of April.

For writing inspiration, I decided to write from a list I made last month of 30 things that make me happy.
One each day of the month. Today, day three: the color of my kitchen, buttercream

light brewing before dawn

morning is slow to enter
trees, fence, hills shield
the rising sun

light

from windows counter
the dark morning song
of coffee

brewing

beginnings of sweet
possibilities that paint
the space

before

dampening
anticipation of the day
buttercream walls soften the breaking

dawn


day 3, national poetry month, 2021
