Before I open my sleepy eyes to the dawn’s first blush in the early morning hour, a beauitful refrain filters in through my open window.
The sweet melody of birds caroling awakens me, their cheerful greetings welcoming me to the new day, my heart fills with joy at the sound.
As I lay listening to the merry chorus, a light breeze comes in through the window, brushing against my bare skin.
Inhaling deeply I catch the fresh scent of a familiar fragrance mingling in the air, indiscernible to my newly awakening senses, but it soothes me and I sigh.
Dawn’s increasing light streams in, I feel the comforting warmth of the newly risen sun shining on my face, perceive it behind my closed eyelids.
But I am reluctant to open them.
For I wish to remain in this peaceful place, reveling in this morning serenade.
