That’s when it came! Struggling to wrest the cobwebs from my mind, I sensed its presence, its intrusion. Stealthily, bit by bit, inch by inch, it had crept into my bedroom through the window. I was alone and powerless to delay its intent. Nothing on earth could have stopped it. I rose, tiptoeing over to its point of entry.
My sleepy eyes peered through the aperture of the bedroom window blinds, and there it was, relishing in its magnificent colorful display. A clear view of the horizon revealed a bluish-tinged sky painted with vivid orange-pink hues. As my mind slowly cleared, blue sky began to dominate as the brilliant red-orange ball imperceptibly became smaller and brighter as it rose radiantly in the sky. The golden orb slowly released its fiery, throbbing thrust of blinding light, bedazzling the land with colorful, buttery splashes.
A new day had dawned!
