Sunrise

As I watch the sunrise, my head is filled with thoughts of you.

Beautiful. Gentle.

The start of a new day. Though I haven’t slept all night.

The sun is bright, but not yet warm. I shiver in the stillness of the morning.

Sharp, cool air passes between my lips.

Clouds, streak from one end of the ever brightening sky to the other.

Dew glistens on the grass, it’s blades poking between my bare toes.

Silence is broken by noisy birds calling to one another. Kangaroos bound across the field near by, casting long shadows as they move.

The cat rubs against my arm. She wants her breakfast.

All I want is you. To keep me warm.

As I watch the sunrise.

Artist's Description

I didn’t intend this to be any form of “art,” it’s actually an insomnia-inspired email I wrote.

Sickeningly sweet, yes.

But I don’t care.
