tidings

A creature was stirring before dawn this morning, coughing actually. I got up to see if I could bring her anything, but she drifted right back to sleep. Which is how I found myself in the kitchen at 6 am with the most beautiful ancient carols on the radio, coffee in hand and cards to savor. So still, so bright. Everything else fell away and Christmas floated in.
