5th dnd – Should the awake mind be considered an action?

You can talk telepathically to any creature you can see within 10 yards of you.

Nothing in the Wake function says anything by taking an action, so it does not take action. This corresponds to the default rules for speaking that does not take action.

You can communicate like you canby short words and gestures, your turn.

This ability simply allows you to talk telepathically and does not change the economy of action to do so.
