It is painfully beautiful outside 
And I want tea with milk 
A French Don’t Diet breakfast 

It is painfully beautiful outside 
And I want iced tea and tomato 
With cheddar cheese melted on
A baguette for breakfast 

It is painfully beautiful outside 
And I want Lunches of mozzarella, cucumber,
Tomato salads that taste like happiness
Dinners with locally smoked salmon

It is painfully beautiful outside
And I want fresh fruits and fresh veg
Fresh annoyance at Farmers’ Market elitists
Who cut in line and converse in the walkways

It is painfully beautiful outside
And I want summer and vodka iced tea
Lazy afternoons with wine or tequila

It is painfully beautiful outside
And I want to write and recreate
To watch some show I just have to see

It is painfully beautiful outside
And I want naps in the sun, a purring cat 
No one to disappoint or impress
Time and music and words
Drifting thoughts
Conversations that ramble past dinner
Time to think and be and do
Rather than should or guilt or totally planned
