Summer Vancouver Morning

Pleasant dream wakening
Sea breeze air
Boat gently rocking
Happy faced dog waiting for master's eye opening
Licking face alarm clock
Squirming little body

Staggering self goes groggily to head
Thankful for indoor plumbing
Walks dog up dock
Across parking lots
Industrial spaces
Men early working
Dog business done

Fresh coffee soon bubbling up
Sunshine streams through windows
First sip
Warmth and wetness on lips and throat

I call you
Fair haired friend
Hear your answering machine voice
Imagine you in shower
Text message day's greeting
And write this poem

Amazed at what Vancouver becomes
With a little dry and sunshine
A Wonderland beyond all wonders
Home of the sacred and profane.
