I Woke Up

I woke up to the freshness of the ocean in the air

you know that feeling that feels all at once cosy and free

both knowing and thought-less

I spoke first to the trees

their green roof of shelter splayed out before me in the distance and the foreground

I spoke to them in gratitude

they were friends

family and loved ones

I spoke softly, as the morning often dictated

I whispered inwardly to my waiting heart

I felt, in this exchange of acknowledgment, its fire ignite and the sun, just the same as it was only some few seconds ago, now stroked me with a vivid glow of warmth and light
