sunrise senses

mountain Easter sunrise service

sitting on the deck
waiting on the sun to rise

feel the coffee warming my hands
cool wind on my face

listen to the birds, squirrels,
distant rat a tat tat of woodpecker

see the moon setting on one side
as the first rays peek over the ridge
colors light up the sky

a time to reflect and appreciate
all that I see and have and do and am

what is this day
not the plastic baskets at the store
or the new dresses and shoes and bonnets
or the egg hunts after church
green grass stains on new white shoes
and chocolate on lace dresses

but this
peace and beauty of nature
at my own personal sunrise service

Your sunrise scenery sounds like the perfect way to start a special day. Have a wonderful Easter Sunday Susan.
