" early to rise "

---

clear open skies with the sort of clouds which seem to be water-colored on and simply linger overhead. a slight breeze from the west caresses, and everyone is up early today.

i slip off my shoes, then my socks, and my feet connect with the lush thick grasses, still wet from the cool overnight. i can feel the damp earth giving way to my flat wide feet, as my toes grip with each step.

taking this beauty of a morning in creates such a light, and such a lightness in my entire body. i'm not worried or anxious, not aching or rushed, not hesitant or somber.

a group of early risers embrace the air stretching their long lean limbs up-and-outwards, breathe out their stresses, and take in the universe.
