Slow to Rise

by Carolyn Dale Husen

What serenity in sleeping late
on a frigid morn,
Waking to blessed stillness,
Pouring coffee 
into a cup of choice,
Pulling the comfy quilt 
around me.
Satisfied, thankful prayers begin.

A retired educator in journalism, photography and editing, Carolyn Dale Husen has also spent 14 years at a large Methodist church as a pastor’s assistant and communications director.
