A Sunrise, One of Many

with 4 comments


It always seems to me that the majority of people awaken

before I have yet to go to sleep

I envy them.

To sleep a whole night and blend with the rising of the sun

rather than set with it..

The last breathe of night hangs yet in the air

All but the dawn have come and taken it’s place

The only thing seperating the sky from the earth

is the different shades of blue as your vision looses hold of the horizon

A subtle hint of pink peaks out behind the houses

Although there are no clouds a haze lingers still in the air just above the blue

It is light though the sun has not risen and the trees are still gentle silhouettes

I think this is the only time of day when the cattails don’t dance with the the birds and play in the wind

The birds move as one in the morning, a formation or players on a feild, soldiers in  war

All who play their part in what makes the world move forward

Sometimes the sun approches engulfed in clouds

as a ripple in water reachs out so do the pinks and oranges and any other color of a sunrise

That come to paint the canvas of the morning

And now as the sun approaches on what will prove to be another sleepless night

I know it won’t be what I need but it will never fail in reminding me

that Today is another brand new day
