g emil reutter


It is a lifeless morning, a thick mist has settled in

I can’t see the street from my window. The soft

steady glow of candles and aroma of vanilla

pervades the room. There is a quiet that is gentle

yet annoying. Hum of the fan gives rise to a

series of yawns as I listen to various rhythms of

high heels strutting along the sidewalk.

Misty morning

               Glow of candles

                                   Sweet vanilla

                                                  Hum of fan

                                                           Rhythm of heels

There is a quiet that is gentle yet annoying. I yawn and

watch the coffee brew.
