The Sun Rise...

I sat and watched the sun rise
with clouds of pink and white and gold
and the blue was appearing where once was grey.
It was a glorious sight to behold.

I worked the night shift and couldn't sleep
so I decided to go for a drive.
The night was so calm, the stars so bright.
I thought, "those who sleep through this are deprived."

They only see brightness in the heat of the day
and rush about frantically to get things done.
But those that enjoy their lives best, I believe,
are the ones who are up with the rising sun.

There is hope in the last glimmer of twilight
You're at peace with the world, for a moment or two.
Take a breath, take another, clear out your mind.
Sit and watch the sunrise, it is a glorious view.

I so agree, dear Poet friend, a sunrise is a spectacular event and when we watch it we feel the energy for the new day permeating our whole body and soul. (I can't say that I do this often though ..., as I am also a night owl ... a stargazer).

Beautifully expressed.

Love,

Like Margherita... I am a star gazer... but muliple times I've watched the black shining boldness dim and fade into the brilliance of the rising sun. The solitude in those moments... are indeed peace.

A delightful piece, filled with just enough imagery to tweak one's senses; another day reflects another opportunity for the Hope of Christ to flow within us, as the sun's rays warm our flesh with a new dawn. --Joe

Wonderful poem - I loved it. Very lyrical, visual. One of my favorites lines is this

I thought, "those who sleep through this are deprived."

I've been blessed to see the sun rise as well as the sunset - guess I sleep in between.

Loved you poem!
