August 1st

He asked her if she wanted to stay up and watch the sunrise, fully knowing her answer 

about 5:00 am now

a calm aura around them, him knowing the rising suns colors would bring her comfort 

she looked at him tiredly and with excitement

a smile and a soft kiss her answer.

They watched the different shades dance with the clouds and stars, 

the waves swayed

the sounds of the ocean 

a celestial symphony

an astronomical performance for two. 

Iโ€™ve watched more sunsets than sunrise

the opportunity not always available up north

when I get the chance now, I make it a point. 

An intimate moment.

Deep inhalesโ€” the taste of the sea

the silence and soft waves whispering sweet nothings 

anywhere in nature

 where my soul feels.

Every morning we are welcomed by the sun 

every night by the moon,

even when we donโ€™t see them, regardless of the season. 

the colors heavenly, some shades indescribable. 

daily magic that we take for granted.

Moments of awareness.

Happy August 1st. May this month bring you laughs. Belly laughs with snorts.
