early morning harmony in rthymn

          I snuggle

               beneath

       a mound of covers

                before

the break of light
relishing those last  minutes
of quietness before the start
of a hectic day.

 I am interrupted
   by the steady drumming
       of ice pellets on the windowpane
     signaling
         late winter’s hold 
              over me.
