A Country Sunrise

The white porcelain mug
rested on her fingertips
her lips yearned for the sweet
familiar taste of morning
with its warm hazelnut finish
and soft sunrise

Her eyes held the orange kiss
between the earth and sky
a horizon which promised
uninterrupted time

minutes free to live, to love 
without the constant
interpretation from God's believers
about what form love should take

As if they know what it took to make
the heavens and the seas

For that gentle moment
inside the new dawn
when the cold morning's breath
met the rooster's song
she bowed her head

She prayed for freedom
from the fear in their hearts 
knowing she would offer it back to them
if it wasn't love they needed so much more.
