Morning Majesty

Morning majesty
I wait at the window
our hotel room perched 11 stories up
spying on streets alive with morning
a bright girl grabs my glance
she is maybe 5 and running on the rooftop
dressed in yellow, traversing the tarmac like morning sunrise
she is joy and discovery and release
the promise of the morning for a new and good day
around her gather more children
having discovered some secret playground
some place they should not be permitted to play
but are
they spill across its canvas
splattering corporate Calgary in
abstract expressionism
mess
joy
I wait at the window for my wife
readying herself
making herself even more beautiful
if that could be
and there is praise playing
through the iPod alarm clock
heralding a moment
declaring it even more beautiful
if that could be

Morning majesty
I wait at the window
ready when you are
