Sunrise on the Beach

It seems a simple thing to see a sunrise at the beach,
walking along sand when sky kisses shoreline at the beach.

Waking from a warm soft bed to go outside
I carry coffee in a paper cup; stumble onto the beach.

In that dark moment sun is just inching above  horizon,
ears call me to the sounds of slow small waves, at the beach

Low tide waves. A calm warm day. Sky agrees.
Sun emerges from the water; tosses shafts of light onto the beach

Glitter and glare fill sky, then, purple, pink, blue. Such sights seen,
walking along sand when sky kisses shoreline at the beach.
