I wrap myself in the blue velvet cloak
of an early morning sky before sunrise.
The deep blue speaks to all my senses, calm, beautiful
full of promise of another new day.
The light reflections in the water glimmer brightly
foraging for treasures beneath the surface.
I hasten my step to get to a place where I can see the lightening sky
As I approach the spot, the sky is being repainted
in shades of soft yellow and orange tinged with pink.
Tones of blue take over
and the water, not wanting to be left out,
proudly reflects the sky
adding a few ripples which makes the whole scene come alive
like a moving film.
The scene increases in drama
and I hold my breath at the sheer beauty
as the slideshow of the sky seems to accelerate.
Just like me,
two water birds look expectantly towards the horizon
The movements in the water
ondulate to a secret rhythm only known to them.
Far away, golden trumpets announce the arrival of the sun.
The silence is astounding
and the first golden rays of the sun ease themselves over the dip
in the mountains beyond,
creating a pale ribbon of sparkling light across the water.
A small boat slides silently across my line of vision.
I witness the birth of a new day
and I feel a surge of energy grow within me which tingles joyfully
in the tips of my fingers right down to my toes.
I feel renewed.
