Scent of the Morning

Oh how glorious it would be, to wake up in the morning to the rooster perched on the fence crowing, walk to your back door, open it and get hit by the scent of ripe mangoes on the tree in the back yard. Watch the sun slowly rise over the hillside. Experience the world turn from gray silver to gold yellow. Feel the world turn from a crisp early morning cool, to a warm midday hug. Inhale and taste the mangoes even before you walk out the door to pick them. Set them in a bowl on the dining room table, so the house can smell like a tropical fruit market for the rest of the day.
