Awakening

Wouldn’t it be just grand to wake up to the sound of the waves and this view every morning? Sunrise at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, 2010, Photo Credit (c) Marc Roxas

Consciousness gradually fades in as she slowly becomes aware of her surroundings, one sense at a time. The smooth sheets, the warm embrace of her body’s heat sequestered by the blankets. In the distance, a bird flies by.  Her eyes sense the daylight through closed lids. They slowly flutter open.  She stirs, ever so slowly. Then the body stretches and unfolds, a muscle at a time. She looks around the room and takes a long deep breath. She rolls on her side and her eyes rest on him as he quietly sleeps.  His even breathing. How peaceful he looks. She knew instantly that the day would be all right.

I had written this post before for a 100-word challenge but it seems fitting for Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge:  Good Morning!

  8. Yes, that will be grand. Your dream of a scene to wake up, is a dream of mine too. I need to wish and pray harder…I believe it will come soon for all of us. For now, I will bask in the beauty and peace of this oceans cape. Have a great day.
