Wake Up To Morning


I am the time of day right around sunrise, when the sky is still a pale bluish gray. The streets are empty, and the grass and leaves are a little bit sparkly with dew. I am the sound of a few chirpy birds outside the window. I am quiet, peaceful, and contemplative. If I move slowly, it's not because I'm lazy. It's because I know there's no reason to rush. I move like a relaxed cat, pausing for deep stretches that make my muscles feel alive. I am long sips of tea or coffee (out of a mug that's held with both hands) that slowly warm my insides just as the sun is brightening the sky.

I already knew that I am a morning person, so there was no surprise here. It just confirmed the things that I enjoy when I wake up, usually in dawn's early light. If you would like to try this quiz for yourself, you can find it here.
