The Warming

I awoke to the blue air-conditioned hum of her apartment and climbed out of bed, making my way into the living room where filtered light adorned the cooled fibers of the carpet. Synthetically inundated and numb, longing for something natural... I remembered the sun.

I opened the front door and stepped outside, welcomed by flowers, bushes and the beautiful morning sky. My bare feet warmed by the concrete and I felt alive again.
