Coffee with the Dawn

I stand at my window and watch
one by one the stars all leave me
I am having coffee with the dawn
the first ray of sun descending
into my coffee cup
into my heart
The steam of my coffee ascending
to the heavens
into God’s heart
The yearning in my heart streaming
to the heavens
into God’s heart
And God, standing in the heavens
watching the sun rise in my heart
leans down to breathe in
the first rays of my yearning
and names it morning prayers.
