My eyes weren’t open yet
but I was awake,
enjoying the soft cooler air
floating through the open window.
It’s such a delight
to wake up to fresh air.
I let the temperature sit
at 82 degrees
during the day,
then turn off the air conditioner,
turn on the attic fan
and open all the windows
at bedtime. It’s a delight
to wake up to the morning’s
fresh, cool air.
And birdsong.
My eyes weren’t open yet
but I was awake when
I heard the first birdsong.
Cardinal I think.
Opened my eyes: 5:56 a.m.
What time do the birds start singing
in your neighborhood?
