A loud sunrise

Photo by Sue Vincent

The sun screams from behind
darkened clouds –
a crescendo of deep oranges
bustling just over the horizon.

A din of shaggy clouds hang
higher, standing with a clamor
before the blues of another day
waking up with fresh eyes

and stale breath. We inhale
the new day – the tumult
from another revolution
erupting to wake us, wiping

the night from our eyes –
and blinking, step into the light.

    “the tumult from another revolution erupting to wake us” – brilliant line! I love this very fresh and unique take on a sunrise. It’s thought-provoking and invigorating. Thanks for helping to get me going this Sunday morning!
