6

eggs

a nightmare
of breakfast
dishes caked
and parched
hardly
testify to
halcyon
days

yet

a fragile finger of
sunlight teases me
transcendence
through the frosted
window
warm steam

rises

if I close my eyes
I can just about see
a pair of tree kings
nesting
calming the undulating
water
their legendary eggs
hatching
in halcyon
bliss
