Dawning of a day starts slowly
A sliver of almost light along the distant horizon
In the half light rocks and waves move
Shape changing in those moments
Not light, not dark, dawning.
Softly the light increases
Spectral colours illuminate the beginning of a day
Gazing east to west slowly
Orange moves all the way to blue
Uninterrupted by rules of colour
Light just is colour.
Stark squinting light arrives
Breaching the horizon the sun burns
Unbearable light to the eye
Yet turn to face the point of ending
Rays warm my back gently.
What started gently, slowly, softly
Now strong, sharp, blinding
Intensity takes us by surprise
The day has begun.
Peace and light. Ali xx
