Sunrise – m.joy

Sunrise

Woke with unknown expectation
and pushed the window ajar.

my cat arrived and with excitement we listened
to the chorus of birdsong exploding outside
and felt the cool air

I know if i could see beyond the trees i could see the sunrise
and it would be very beautiful
but through the trees i can see glimpses
of firey red and umber
below the clear pale blue sky

Gradually the sky to the east behind the trees
fills with tangarene
like paint seeping along the paper
of a watercolour until
the whole sky glowed

and another day begins.
