THE LAST OF THE SUMMER JUMPSUITS

There is nothing more beautiful than a kitchen at 5 AM. When you’re the first to rise and the floors creek underneath you, their sighs going in tandem with the rustling of sheets and the quiet ending of dreams. The way the darkness whispers through the small kitchen window and pools in silver light on the floor. The way it catches and snags against the lace of the curtain and spills down over the empty coffee mugs in the sink. The steam from my coffee yawns and stretches towards the ceiling, its quiet climb the only sound in the room as I fold into my chair. Eyes still heavy with midnight, I put my chin in my palm and look out the window towards the grey sky, watching the stars being snipped from their strings one by one.

And think of you.

  4. Great look.. and I couldn't agree more.. one of my favorite times is when the house is quiet and I'm pouring my coffee in the early morning dark, with the soft glow of the stove light... magical..

  9. I really like your description of a kitchen at 5am. Very lovely.
    That jumpsuit is really cute on you. I don't know if I could pull one off as well, but I definitely like the idea of a white collared shirt under a black pinafore style dress, with a broad brimmed hat to top it off.

  13. Love this!
    I am totally signing up to your poetry newsletter. It will be nice to have something coming into my inbox that doesn't want me to buy something. I was the first one awake in my house at 6am yesterday but I was preparing for a mid term so it was more of an impending doom feeling than happiness and contentment.

  27. 1) You wake up at 5 am. How I wish I had that dedication to waking up- but then again, your description makes me want to wake up that early for that image.

    2) "Last of the summer jumpsuits" <- the phrase just makes me smile.

    3) You know, I'm not much of a jump suit fan, but you are starting to sell me on this because it is adorable and sort of- timeless.

  29. What a beautifully written little piece - I've said it before but your writing style really does make me melt. You captured an early morning wake up so perfectly. I especially love the silver light snagging on the lace of the curtain, the word snag conjures up the best image.

    As well as your writing talent I am super jealous of that jumpsuit, I'm still umming and ahhing over adding one into my wardrobe or not.
