Sunday mornings mean laundry time for me. Because there are no hook ups in the apartment I live in, I go to wash my clothes at a laundromat that is located a block from where I live. I woke up later than normal today so doing laundry was not exactly my favorite morning activity.
After inserting the coins into the machines I was using, my iPhone rings. The Caller ID says Unknown. I normally would have let it go to voice mail, but instead, I answered it.
Surprised, that call changed my day. You see, it made me happy.

Your voice sends my heart
to a place where I thought I never visit again
Where dreams come true
Are you real?
Because I feel alive, as if the
sun warmed the life back into my body
Your voice fills me and resonates
hope where I was hopeless
yet something else has happened
Yes, you are real
I realized that your voice has broken
the harshness of the morning
and I am
