sunrise in valencia


The sun didn't wake up yet. A mild and cooling breeze comes through the open window that carries the smell of the sea. It feels as if this breath of air has secrets to tell and I simply can't fall asleep again.


This hour of the morning is such a joy. There is barely enough light to see the smile on your face and I enjoy the pleasant smell of your skin that carries the memories of our passion just hours ago. There is no need for more light. It is your beauty that illuminates this ancient room. Thank you for brightening my world. I’m urged to tell you that you complete me, but that would not be true, because waking up this morning, I long for you more than ever before. I admire the person you are, simply amazing.


Slowly I'm lifting your head from my shoulder and wait until you are asleep again. Sweet dreams my love, I will go and capture the sunrise and wake you up when I'm back. I can’t help but smile. It will be a good day, simply because I started it with you.


"when you arise in the early morning, think of what precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love" (Marcus Aurelius)


The sunrise in Valencia offered a beautiful spectacle. The water at El Saler beach was quite amazing. Although there was just a little breath of air stirring, the waves of the sea heaved slowly with a calming motion. A sunrise lasts just a few amazing minutes, but its beauty can warm your heart the whole day.
