Some really nice things

Spooning thick clotted cream onto milky porridge and sprinkling crunchy granola on top. Sinking my fingers into a pot of body soufflé, butter or balm and smoothing it over my skin. Opening the dishwasher and feeling a puff of steam on my face. Cupping a hot mug of tea between my palms. Waking to the sound of birds singing and noticing it’s light outside. A blast of fresh morning air. Coffee and conversation. Lighting a collection of candles on the dining table as the light starts to fade. Dancing to trending Tiktok songs. Early nights and early mornings. The quiet.
