As I Wake

As I wake, 
cool air slips through the open window 
caressing my cheeks and forehead with its freshness. 
Small birds chatter away, a single crow sounds his horn–
and then my senses perk up as I hear the familiar 
and welcome sound of Canadian Geese pass overhead, 
with their deep guttural, honk-honk–I take a deep breath, 
smile, and live in the moment of waking.
