As I awake from my peaceful slumber,
my eyes open to the first rays of the rising sun.
They pass through the bay window,
sparkling brightly, as if to say –
My ears hear the delightful sounds
of nature greeting the new day.
The birds chirp in melodious song,
as the morning breeze kisses my face.
I smile, quietly taking it all in.
The sunrise has brought peace
For a few precious moments,
the world, in all its glory,
is exactly as it should be.
