you’re a sunrise swim in texas
quiet warm and sweet
all full of light and magic
you’re my home
even the birds know
chirping me along this morning
pink skies turning blue
water shimmering reflections of the trees
everything around me
waking up slow
except my dizzy head
awake since five
begging me to come out here
dip underneath
and move
my whole self
back and forth across the surface
and breathe
you’re my home and this place never was
I love you
