Christmas Eve Morn

Waking to darkness
Listening to quiet
Tiptoeing in silence
Making a cup of coffee 
  with the Keurig Coffee Maker in the guest bathroom.

Watching horizons brighten
Waiting for signs of life
Enjoying the calm
Hearing a burp 
  followed closely by an, “Excuse me.”

A device tossed
Onto the table
The light is on
Handheld solitaire 
  with a high score of 575. Nice, Greta.

Sky getting lighter
Sounds getting louder
Calm fading quickly
Craziness begins 
  but how sweet the sounds, sights and soon, smells.
