Watching the Earth Wake
This shot is the reason why I was running late for work this morning, sometimes moments like this stun you into forgetting the everyday routine of life. For me this sunrise wasn’t worth missing for anything! I hope you enjoy the pic, and poem to accompany it. 🙂
Steam rises and falls
misting the entire landscape
heat boiling rain-kissed grass
I open my eyes in time to see the earth wake.
Ever so slowly it stretches
the tip of the sun blinking lazily
watching the sky yawn,
clouds still blushing pink from their night out
hurriedly scuttling into place for dawn.
Shadows cast now disappear
a blast of blazed orange chases away the cold,
I fling my dirty yellow penny towards the horizon
see it land with a ping right in the middle
then slowly rise up
