Few people know the magic behind a cup of coffee on a Sunday morning. I’m one of the few, and I’m sure you know I’m just kidding. One thing is true, though, is that an early morning writing is the best time to pen the most beautiful prose. At least, this is my personal experience. I don’t drink coffee, but I don’t negotiate my cup of chocolate milk over French toast. Facing east, I watch the first rays of the sun—pinkish yellow—pushing their way behind the thick foams of clouds in the distant sky. Although it’s late spring, the early morning breeze still blows across the towering pines, forcing the branches to toss in the air amid turtledoves’ cooing and mockingbirds’ chirping, breaking the sunrise stillness. I sit on the back porch, pen and paper in hand to jot down this breathtaking observation. It’s nice to watch nature in action over a cup of coffee or a cup of chocolate milk. Happy Sunday writing!
