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.
I’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 inhales— 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 don’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.
