early morning sunlight
I bought the chair for twenty-five cents at a tag sale
my sister and I stopped at after visiting our mum one afternoon.
I love to imagine it as part of a matching set around an old wooden table
somebody's grandmother spreading cherry preserves on a piece of homemade toast
and hanging her apron over one of the posts.
At my house it captures the early morning sunlight
jars full of green and blue sea-glass on the windowsills
frisbees brought in from the evening prior
and an old crazy quilt I keep meaning to finish....
It's one of my favorite pieces of furniture in the house
and it's just a little thing
