Poetry: The Perfect Day

The Per­fect Day
–Alice N. Persons
From Nev­er Say Never

You wake with
no aches
in the arms
of your beloved
to the smell of fresh coffee
you eat a giant breakfast
with no thought
of carbs
there is time to read
with a purring cat on your lap
lat­er you walk by the ocean
with your dog
on this cut crys­tal day
your favorite music and the sun
fill the house
a short deli­cious nap
under a fleece throw
comes later
and the phone does­n’t ring
at dusk you roast a chicken,
bake bread, make an exquisite
choco­late cake
for some friends
you’ve been missing
some­one brings you an
unex­pect­ed present
and the wine is just right with the food
after a won­der­ful party
you sink into sleep
in a clean nightgown
in fresh sheets
your sweet­heart does­n’t snore
and in your dreams
an old piece of sadness
lifts away
