As the golden rays of the morning sun gently spill into the dark sky, I sit on my porch  watching the earth wake up.  

The dark shades slowly fade into the beautiful rich orange hues and the blue sky emerges. The fresh air is mesmerizing, the energy invigorating. I feel restfully alert as I listen to the sounds of the birds, ready to take on the day.
