Comparatively, I have seen better sunrises…
..more flashy, more dramatic, perhaps?
There have been times when I gasped, “Oh my!”
Today it was more like “Hmmm, that’s nice.”
But as I continued to watch….
clouds broke up
and light caught their tops, just so…
…before the master crept above the horizon
It reminded me of a long-ago dawn in a distant place.
Then, we had been up three nights in a row in the basic domestic terminal at Khartoum airport.
Jet-lagged and perplexed we may have been
but sunrise over the Sahara cured us of our troubles.
This morning’s show was not unlike that one
and as I watched its many stages
it once more worked its restorative power.
“Yes, that’s awfully nice…”
“…but do you suppose..”
“…we might have breakfast unmolested?”
A flock of geese passed overhead in the Spring-like morning air
It’s another day.
